Gazzetta dello Sport has an interesting slant today on Patrick Cutrone, and what’s holding up his transfer to Fiorentina.
On December 30th it was reported in Italy that Cutrone could leave Wolves within 24 hours. Then on January 6th it was reported he could be off in 48 hours.
Now, on January 8th, the timeframe is back to 48 hours, and there’s a reason for it.
Gazzetta explain La Viola want to sign the player permanently or on loan with a mandatory purchase option in the summer.
However, it’s claimed Wolves don’t want to lose control of Cutrone, which would suggest they’re looking for an option to re-sign him in the future, or at least a chunk of a future transfer fee.
This stance is said to be ‘testing the patience’ of both Fiorentina, and the player is frustrated too because he wants to leave the Premier League club as soon as possible.
Despite all of that, there’s still confidence that a deal can be done within the next few days.
