The future of Patrick Cutrone at Fiorentina is in some doubt and they might not acquire him outright from Wolverhamption Wanderers.
Since arriving on loan from the English club in January, the 22-year-old has scored just five goals in 29 competitive matches, and the Viola want new coach Cesare Prandelli to assess the striker’s qualities to see if his decline in form can be halted.
According to La Nazione, Fiorentina have an obligation to pay Wolves €18 million for Cutrone if he starts 26 matches for the Gigliati and so far he has started 12.
Prandelli is expected to ditch the 3-5-2 formation implemented by his predecessor Giuseppe Iachini and switch to the 4-2-3-1. Although he values the former AC Milan starlet, the new tactician might opt for the physicality of Serbian youngster Dusan Vlahovic instead.
Vlahovic too has struggled to impress and he has been linked with a transfer to Benevento in January.
Cutrone has played in all seven Serie A matches so far in 2020/21 and failed to score.
