Patrick Cutrone was promoted to AC Milan’s first team in 2017 after he impressed in the Primavera during the 2016/17 season.

The striker extended his good form for the Rossoneri’s first team for the next two seasons, which helped him get a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2019.

However, the 23-year-old has struggled to replicate his Milan form at Wolves, which is why he has been out on loan since the 2020 winter market.

Wolves recalled Cutrone from his loan spell at Fiorentina in January and sent him out again, on loan, to Valencia the same month.

Former Los Ches defender Amedeo Carboni spoke to ElDesmarque Valencia and explained why the Italy international struggled with the Premier League side.

“Cutrone is a boy who when he emerged in the first division with Milan made a difference, due to his strength, desire, confidence. He had a lot of goals. He has always been a promise that was almost real,” he said.

“When he had to leave to make the leap from a promise to a reality, perhaps he lacked confidence because he is very young. I think that is what he needs, to feel loved.”

Cutrone made his debut for the La Liga side in their 1-1 draw against Athletic Club Bilbao last weekend. Javi Gracia’s side took him on a loan deal that expires at the end of the season.

Carboni stressed the Wolves owned player has a short time to convince Valencia to retain him beyond this campaign.

“It’s three months, a particular situation and success is not going to be easy. And even more so in this much-needed Valencia, where in a forward, if he doesn’t score in one game, you don’t know if you are going to start the next game,” Carboni explained.

“He is a boy who gives everything, he is not the classic nine… He needs movement; but what he needs most is confidence and feeling comfortable.

“It will not be easy, it is three months, they are few; On the other hand, this is the occasion to try to get something good and so that Valencia can think about him in the future.”

“The most important thing to think about is that he has three months ahead of him to prove himself more than ever, to know if he is going to be an important player or just a player.”
