Patrick Cutrone has said his time at Wolves was “a great experience”, but he jumped at the chance to join Fiorentina.
Cutrone moved to Molineux in July 2019, joining the club in a £16.2m deal from AC Milan, bringing an end to 13 years with the Italian giants in something of a surprise transfer.
There was much hope about the move, with Wolves fans hoping he would add much-needed competition upfront for striker Raul Jiménez.
His time at the club proved to be nothing short of a disaster, though, with him managing just three goals and four assists for Wolves in 24 games and less than 1000 minutes overall.
He’s since departed, returning to Italy on loan with Fiorentina in the January transfer window, agreeing to a deal that runs until the summer of 2021.
Given his experience in England wasn’t the greatest, most would forgive Cutrone if he were to look back on his spell at Wolves without much fondness.
He, though, insists that isn’t the case, and he had nothing but a positive experience in England, although his focus is now firmly on Fiorentina suggesting he is open to a permanent switch.
“A great experience, I discovered a new culture and the Premier has always thrilled me,” he told his fans on Instagram Live, relayed by Fiorentina.it.
“As soon as I heard Fiorentina’s interest, I immediately said yes.
“I consider Fiorentina a nice club, which has a good history behind it, where many strong players have passed. I was also thrilled to come to a city like Florence and get to know a football fanbase like La Viola.
“The great thing was to feel very close to the president and club. It is something that not everyone does. It was very nice to feel their closeness; it makes you think well.”
