Patrick Cutrone is grateful to AC Milan but claims he was sold by his former club because there is a preference for Italian teams to field foreign players.

The one-cap Italy international ended his 12-year association with boyhood club Milan in July after taking up Wolves' offer of a four-year deal.

He came through the Rossoneri's youth ranks and scored 18 goals in all competitions in an impressive breakthrough campaign in 2017-18, but the 21-year-old was less prolific last term and was moved on for a reported €22million during the close season.

Portuguese forward Rafael Leao, 20, was brought in as a replacement and Cutrone believes that move - as well as Moise Kean's switch from Juventus to Everton - is indicative of the way teams operate in Serie A.

"Me and Kean in the Premier League? It's always the same story - foreigners are preferred to us," he told Gazzetta dello Sport. 

"For us twenty-somethings, it's hard, but in any case I'd like to emphasise something - I’ll always be grateful to Milan for what they gave me."

Cutrone will be back in Italy this week as part of Wolves' squad for their Europa League play-off first leg against Torino.

The Milan youth product has made four appearances for his new side and is expecting a difficult test in Turin on Thursday.

"My first impressions of Wolves have been excellent," he said. "I was received very well and I've already settled in. 

"I didn't like living in a hotel, so I've found a house where my best friend has been keeping me company.

"It'll be tough against Torino. They're a good team and there are several similarities between us and them - passionate fans, character, pride, a sense of belonging."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed there is interest in Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez, who is strongly linked with joining Serie A side Inter.

Sanchez has endured a miserable time at United since he joined from Arsenal in January 2018 in a deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to the Gunners.

He has scored four goals in 32 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils, with his spell at Old Trafford heavily affected by various injuries.

Inter are reportedly keen to sign Sanchez on loan, which would allow the Chile international to reunite with his former United team-mate Romelu Lukaku.

While Solskjaer was unwilling to give firm details about the status of a potential move for Sanchez, he accepted the 30-year-old may depart before the European transfer deadline on September 2.

"There's still a couple weeks left of the transfer window," Solskjaer said after Monday's 1-1 league draw away to Wolves.

"There is a chance [he could leave]. Some clubs have shown interest in Alexis and we'll see what happens. 

"We can't update you more than that."

While Sanchez's time at Old Trafford looks to be coming to an end, fellow forward Anthony Martial has started the 2019-20 season in fine form.

The France international hit the opening goal of the game at Molineux to reach 50 in all competitions for United and Solskjaer hailed his impact.

"He's scored two in two now and he'll only improve," Solskjaer said of Martial. "The relationship between him and Marcus [Rashford], Jesse [Lingard] and the other forwards will only improve.

"The more we get him into positions to score, the more he will. He's more between the posts so I'm happy with that.

"It was a wonderful goal."

United were denied the three points that would have taken them top as Rui Patricio saved Paul Pogba's second-half penalty after Ruben Neves had cancelled out Martial's effort.

Nuno Espirito Santo said VAR cannot be allowed to affect goal celebrations after his Wolves side drew 1-1 with Manchester United.

Ruben Neves scored a sensational equaliser at Molineux on Monday to cancel out Anthony Martial's first-half opener for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men.

The midfielder unleashed a stunning curling strike that clipped the underside of the crossbar, scoring his 10th goal from outside the penalty box for Wolves.

But there were lengthy delays after the goal as VAR checked whether or not there was an offside in the build-up to Neves' 20-yard effort.

"I didn't want to lose that moment," Nuno told a news conference. "I don't know how they're going to solve it, I gave my opinion to it, but it's the emotion.

"You celebrate a goal and it's such a beautiful moment, so when you are stood in silence waiting for it, don't take that away from the people, because it's the most important moment in football.

"I was hoping [Neves would score], not expecting, because he's fantastic. He has this technique of kicking the ball, he's done it sometimes before, but he has to do it over and over again because this is what counts."

After Rui Patricio saved Paul Pogba's penalty at 1-1, Wolves became the first team to come from behind and avoid defeat in three consecutive Premier League games against Manchester United.

Nuno's men beat United at home in both the league and FA Cup last term and the head coach praised another high-class home performance from his side.

"I am proud of all the performance because this is what matters in this moment of the competition," he added.

"It was a game of emotion, this is what Molineux enjoys and we have to thank them [the fans] so much because the atmosphere when we get control of the game and create chances, they really push us, amazing.

"Let's do what we do, play with the energy we should play with, embrace the challenge and fight for the game. The boys fought for every single ball, it was so good, I'm very proud of them."

Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford's penalty debate during the game against Wolves was like a "tombola", according to former Manchester United captain Gary Neville.

Pogba and Rashford had a lengthy discussion over who should take a spot-kick – won by the France midfielder following a foul by Conor Coady – at Molineux on Monday.

Rashford scored from the spot in United's win over Chelsea on the opening weekend but on this occasion the England striker threw the ball to Pogba.

Rui Patricio duly saved Pogba's effort and the World Cup winner has now missed four Premier League penalties since the start of the 2018-19 season.

Neville, in an appearance as a pundit on Sky Sports, was furious about the impromptu consultation between Pogba, Rashford, Daniel James, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial over penalty duties.

"There was a debate between Martial, James, Rashford and Pogba," he said after the 1-1 draw. "It was more like: 'Go on mate you have it'.

"This is not right, by the way. Look, here comes Paul Pogba, now Lingard is getting involved. Is Pogba the penalty taker and Rashford has taken it off him?

"I'm holding back on Pogba because he may be the penalty taker here. It isn't right. They should decide before they play. This is not right.

"This is a Manchester United penalty. This is not a tombola. This is not under-fives football on the playground. Rashford throws the ball to Pogba. Something is not right.

"Why is there a debate on who takes a penalty? Pogba has missed four in the last 12 months – so you would think he's had his chance now. Rashford scored last week, take the penalty. 

"But there wasn't a leader on the pitch."

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer later clarified on Sky Sports that Pogba and Rashford share penalty duties, with the decision over who steps up left down to the players themselves.

As Jofra Archer proved in the second Ashes Test, pace changes everything.

Senses are sharper, adrenaline pumps and numerous elements thought to be under control escape it.

Monday's Premier League showdown between Wolves and Manchester United at Molineux – which ended with the spoils fairly shared in a 1-1 draw – was similarly a contest at its best when clattering along without a thought for the consequences.

Only with a full pre-season under his belt can Ole Gunnar Solskjaer truly be considered at the United wheel. And his is a team built for speed.

As in their 4-0 thumping of Chelsea on the opening weekend, plenty of United's early work was scruffy and without structure – they completed only 70.7 per cent of their first-half passes – but they have a forward line to frighten.

Jet-heeled winger Daniel James might have put his standout asset to better use had he spent more of the opening 45 minutes upright. A booking for simulation was deserved, welcomed with delight by the Molineux faithful and a grounding moment for a young talent on the crest of a wave.

Similar enthusiasm once surrounded Anthony Martial, like James a goalscorer from the bench on his Old Trafford debut. Here he became the first player to score 50 goals in a United shirt untouched by the hand of Alex Ferguson since the great man left the building.

The road from his 2015 roof-raiser versus Liverpool to this point has been a bumpy one, but there was a delightful smoothness in the slick interchange between Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford that allowed Martial to rifle an unstoppable strike past Rui Patricio. If ever there was a shot to make up for neither side managing an attempt in the first 26 minutes, it was this.

Solskjaer's front four in fast-forward caused Wolves plenty of problems, not least pushing them too deep to effectively launch their trademark counter-attacking raids. The sight of centre-forward Raul Jimenez turning to attack on the left wing, midway inside his own half, was a forlorn one.

Nuno Espirito Santo plotted success last season on the basis of polished and precise work in the transitions, but with calculation failing he opted for chaos. He brought on Adama Traore.

Blessed with the frame of a Greco-Roman wrestler and the pace of a 100 metre sprinter, Wolves' unusual Olympian composite barrelled rapidly about the place and put United – especially left-back Luke Shaw, who must have felt like he was marking an articulated lorry with dodgy breaks – on their heels.

Eschewing a run into space down the flank, Traore darted into traffic in the 53rd minute, smashing through Scott McTominay. Harry Maguire's finger wagging when his foul ended the assault made it look as if he just found the whole thing a bit silly.

It was, although United never truly cleared their lines from that attack and a dash of their old panache meant an exquisite equaliser for Wolves.

Ruben Neves felt the pain of pace a few moments earlier when he was booked for felling James. Yet he brought the ball and time under his spell when he collected Joao Moutinho's neatly worked corner. United defenders charged towards and past the delicious curler that thumped David De Gea's crossbar on the way in

Paul Pogba, once again influential on the other side of his close-season discontent, was inspired to bring his poise to the party – gliding into the Wolves area with intent. It all happened too quickly for Conor Coady. The Wolves captain had his hands in the air to protest against the foul before he made it.

And so Pogba stood and waited, sizing up Patricio. A conventional run-up and a firm hit later, the Portugal international guessed correctly.

Red and gold shirts dashed manically after the loose ball. It would have jarred had this game been decided by a moment immediately after everyone stood still.

Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba are both Manchester United's designated penalty takers, according to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

With United drawing 1-1 at Wolves in the Premier League on Monday, Pogba won a penalty by drawing a foul from captain Conor Coady in the box.

After an on-field discussion over who would step up to take the kick, Pogba got the nod but saw his effort saved by Rui Patricio.

Rashford converted a penalty in last weekend's 4-0 defeat of Chelsea and the striker has a 100 per cent record from the spot.

But at Molineux the England striker threw the ball to Pogba, who has now missed four Premier League penalties since the start of last season.

"Because the two are designated penalty shooters, it's up to them who feels it is theirs," Solskjae told Sky Sports. 

"Sometimes players feel they are confident enough to score. Paul scored so many for us but the keeper made a good save.

"They are very confident, Marcus scored last week and he would have loved it but Paul was also confident and I like that confidence."

Rashford also played down the penalty incident with Pogba when he went in front of the television cameras, United having missed the chance to move top of the Premier League table after two games.

"Paul wanted to take it, it's that simple," Rashford told Sky Sports. "Everyone can miss one, he's scored countless for us and throughout his career, it's normal. We forgot about it now and we go again.

"It's simple, if you want to take it, you take it. I took it last week so it's no problem for him to take it. It's unfortunate he didn't score it but that's football.

"The confidence you're going to score is always the same and so it should be. We practice all week and score the majority of the time so there's no reason not to be confident. 

"It's not on him [Pogba], it's as a team and we take that forward into the next game."

The other major talking point was Daniel James being shown a yellow card for simulation in the first half, but Solskjaer defended United's new signing.

"I don't think it's a booking, I've not seen it," said Solskjaer.

"He's so quick, he gets kicked so many times and gets a lot of yellows for defenders against him.

"Sometimes he gets fouled and it doesn't look like it. I don't think it's a yellow card from seeing it live."

Paul Pogba had a penalty saved by Rui Patricio as Manchester United could only draw 1-1 at Wolves in the Premier League on Monday.

Anthony Martial's 50th United goal opened the scoring in the 27th minute, the France forward reaching the milestone by converting the first shot of the game.

Wolves levelled in the 55th minute with a goal that survived lengthy VAR checks for offside, Ruben Neves smashing home a 20-yard drive after a clever set-piece routine.

Pogba had the best chance to take all three points but saw his spot-kick kept out by Patricio, with United unable to make amends for two defeats at Molineux last term.

Daniel James was booked for his second dive in the 24th minute as both sides, preferring to play on the break, felt their way into the match.

United broke the deadlock soon after, patient possession on the left leading to Marcus Rashford sliding a pass through for his strike partner, with Martial lashing home a first-time finish.

Wolves hit back after the break though, the half-time introduction of Adama Traore giving United a fresh problem to handle, with a glancing Raul Jimenez header hitting the inside of the post.

The equaliser came moments later. A short corner was well worked by Joao Moutinho to Neves, lurking with intent on the edge of the penalty area, and he crashed a trademark strike in off the underside of the crossbar.

United should have retaken the lead in the 68th minute but Pogba, having won a penalty for Conor Coady's clumsy challenge, failed to beat Patricio from the penalty spot.

A stretched finale saw chances at both ends, with Luke Shaw denied at the death as neither side could find a late winner.


What does it mean? Wolves still a menace for top-six rivals

Europa League duties could hinder Wolves' attempts to break into the top six this term but Nuno Espirito Santo's side look set to bloody some more noses in 2019-20 having matched United.

The Red Devils, who would have gone top of the league with a win, have now failed to win any of their past five away games in the Premier League.


Neves unstoppable from outside the box

United knew what Neves was going to do when the corner routine worked the ball to his feet 20 yards out. Defenders scrambled to close the former Porto captain down but he still found enough time and space to whip home his 10th goal from outside the area since joining Wolves in 2017.


James has to cut simulation out

There is no doubt the raw pace of Wales winger James makes him one of the more thrilling additions to the Premier League this season but he must learn to stay on his feet. Reputations are built quickly at this level and they can be hard to shake.


What's next?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side host Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday. Wolves go to Torino for the first leg of their Europa League play-off on Thursday, then a busy start to the season continues when they host Burnley in the Premier League three days later.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised Alexis Sanchez's attitude and challenged the forward "to come good" when he returns to full fitness.

Sanchez has struggled for form since arriving at Old Trafford in January 2018 and has been strongly linked with a move away before the European transfer window closes early next month.

The 30-year-old has managed just five goals in 45 appearances for United and has not featured since last season due to his Copa America commitments with Chile.

But Solskjaer shot down claims Sanchez has been told to train away from the first-team squad and said he expects the ex-Arsenal ace to feature heavily over the course of the season.

"Alexis is such a professional. He comes in working every single day, really hard," Solskjaer said at Friday's news conference.

"He wants to be part of this. These stories that he's been put in the reserves - of course he hasn't.

"He's part of our squad and he's a very good player. He's a few weeks behind the rest but he's very close to being part of it.

"We don't have the biggest forward line, so Alexis might end up playing a lot more games than you expect. We expect him to come good at this club. He's quality."

Brazil midfielder Fred is another player to have made minimal impact at United and did not even make the bench for last weekend's 4-0 win against Chelsea.

Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo were other high-profile casualties on the opening weekend, leaving Solskjaer to talk up the depth of his squad ahead of Monday's trip to Wolves.

"The good teams I've played in, we've always had a good keeper and a settled back line," he said.

"In Fred we believe he will have a big season as well.

"Every game is a puzzle because you have good players everywhere. Last time we couldn't fit Smalling, Fred, Marcos, Alexis and Jones into the squad of 18. It's a puzzle all over the pitch, but a nice one to have."

Manchester United's players must "be f***ing better" if they are to put last season's forgettable campaign behind them, according to their former striker Dimitar Berbatov.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men won only one of their final seven Premier League matches in 2018-19 to finish down in sixth place.

That terrible run started with a 2-1 loss to Wolves at Molineux in April, having also suffered a 2-0 defeat at the same ground in the FA Cup quarter-finals the previous month.

However, United started the new season in a positive manner with a 4-0 win against Chelsea last weekend and Berbatov hopes lessons have been learned ahead of Monday's return to Molineux.

"There's only one thing I'd like to see - a better performance than last season," he told the Daily Star. "The way we finished was disappointing.

"So, this season hopefully they can perform better. Not only one player but everybody as a group.

"They must say to themselves, 'OK, we need to be f***ing better'."

Including a penalties win over AC Milan, United enjoyed a clean sweep of victories during pre-season, with new signings Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James both impressing.

Berbatov, who spent four seasons at Old Trafford, wants to see that winning run continue in the Premier League.

"When I saw them [against Inter] in Singapore, what I saw impressed me," he said of the younger players in Solskjaer's squad. "But friendlies are different to Premier League games.

"Sometimes you play more freely in friendlies because there's no pressure. But when the season starts, the nerves start working. Negative thinking starts - but it needs to stop."

Manchester United kicked off their Premier League season in style with a 4-0 victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The final game of the weekend saw United run out comfortable winners on Frank Lampard's bow as Chelsea head coach, with Marcus Rashford scoring twice.

Arsenal also made a positive start to the 2019-20 campaign as they edged out Newcastle United 1-0 at St James' Park, while the clash between Midlands rivals Leicester City and Wolves finished goalless.

That game was not without its controversy, though, with VAR playing a big part in the outcome.

 

RASHFORD, MARTIAL SPOIL LAMPARD'S BIG DAY

Despite starting the match slowly and never really hitting top gear, United put four unanswered goals past Chelsea in a result that can be considered a statement of intent.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started two of his new signings - Aaron Wan-Bissaka and the world's most expensive defender Harry Maguire - before bringing Daniel James on as a second-half substitute.

Rashford opened the scoring for the hosts from the penalty spot against the run of play, after being brought down by Kurt Zouma.

Chelsea struck the frame of the goal through Tammy Abraham and Emerson Palmieri either side of Rashford's opener. However, the game soon slipped away from them following the interval as Anthony Martial rounded off a swift counter-attack and Rashford slotted home a third in the space of 95 seconds.

Debutant James completed the scoring to leave Lampard's men in the relegation zone for the first time since September 30, 2000. It was Chelsea's biggest top-flight defeat to United in 54 years.

AUBAMEYANG THE DIFFERENCE FOR ARSENAL

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang picked up from where he left off last season by scoring the only goal of the game as Arsenal claimed a 1-0 win in Steve Bruce's first competitive match in charge of Newcastle.

A game of few clear-cut chances was settled by last term's joint-Golden Boot winner, who made the most of some slack defending - loanee Jetro Willems being most at fault - to punish United with just under an hour played.

Arsenal, who named new signings David Luiz, Nicolas Pepe, Emiliano Martinez and Dani Ceballos on the bench, saw out the final half an hour to match their away clean sheets tally from the whole of last term in a pleasing result for Unai Emery.

 

DENDONCKER DENIED BY VAR

Two sides tipped to possibly gatecrash the established top six this season faced off at the King Power Stadium, with Leicester and Wolves sharing the spoils.

Dendoncker thought he had scored the only goal of the match after bundling in from a corner early in the second half, but it was ruled out as VAR official Jon Moss spotted a handball from Willy Boly in the build-up.

Raul Jimenez also came close to scoring for Wolves, who were in action three days on from a 4,000-mile round trip to Armenia for a Europa League qualifier, but his deflected shot was dealt with by Kasper Schmeichel.

Wolves have completed the signing of youngster Meritan Shabani from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

The 20-year-old midfielder, who made his senior debut for Bayern in April last year, has agreed a three-year contract with the Premier League club.

Shabani will initially work with Wolves' Under-23 team but has been earmarked for a chance in Nuno Espirito Santo's senior side soon.

"He's a player we've been watching for a long time," said Wolves sporting director Kevin Thelwell. "He's been playing for Bayern Munich's younger teams for a while and our scouting teams have been watching him regularly.

"He's a really talented individual, who is very excited. He has huge potential to assist and score goals, and very pleasing on the eye in terms of his movement.

"I'm sure Meritan will be no different, then it's down to him to prove he's very capable. When Nuno has the chance to see him live, he'll realise the ability he's got and I'm sure he'll have a good opportunity here."

The transfer window slams shut in England on Thursday and Romelu Lukaku is finally set to get his move.

Linked to Inter and Juventus throughout the off-season, Manchester United striker Lukaku is poised to swap Old Trafford for San Siro in Milan.

Lukaku's exit could trigger United to make a late dash for his replacement.

 

TOP STORY – LUKAKU TO SWAP UNITED FOR INTER

After months of speculation, Lukaku will swap Manchester United for Serie A side Inter according to widespread reports.

Lukaku landed in Milan in the early hours of Thursday morning ahead of his €75million (£70m) move to Inter.

Inter will reportedly pay a €65m fixed fee and €10m in add-ons, with the deal also including a five per cent cut of any future sale.

 

ROUND-UP

- With Lukaku leaving Old Trafford, United are willing to pay the £81m (€88m) release clause to lure Inaki Williams from Athletic Bilbao, reports El Chiringuito TV. The Red Devils are also continuing to be linked to Juventus' Mario Mandzukic and former Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente, who is a free agent.

Tottenham are set to complete deadline-day deals for Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso and Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon, reports the Telegraph. Spurs are hopeful of clinching a transfer for Lo Celso at £55m (€59.7m), while Sessegnon could cost £20m.

- According to Sport, Real Madrid have offered €120m plus Luka Modric for wantaway Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar. Barcelona have been linked with their former forward but the LaLiga champions must raise funds before trying to re-sign the Brazil international. Barca could free up space by selling Philippe Coutinho, who has reportedly attracted interest from Premier League trio United, Tottenham and Arsenal.

Arsenal are set for a busy deadline day. The Sun reports the Gunners could land Chelsea defender David Luiz in a £12m deal, while Unai Emery's side have agreed a Scottish transfer record fee of £25m for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney, according to the BBC.

- Tottenham have agreed to sign Juventus star Paulo Dybala but the player's image rights are holding up the deal, says the Independent. Dybala has also been linked to Paris Saint-Germain after turning down a move to Manchester United.

- Sportitalia says Wolves have agreed a £23m (€25m) fee to sign AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, who reportedly wants a wage increase. Wolves have already signed Patrick Cutrone from Milan.

- According to Sky Sports, Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha has handed in a transfer request as Everton look to sign the former Manchester United forward.

Mario Balotelli is on the verge of joining Brazilian side Flamengo until December 2021. That is according to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky Sport Italia. Balotelli is a free agent following his Marseille exit.

Raul Jimenez marked his first Wolves start of the season with a brilliant brace in a 4-1 win at Crusaders to seal the Premier League side's Europa League progression.

Leading 2-0 from the first leg of their second qualifying round tie, Wolves were briefly given a scare as Ryan Bennett put through his own net after 13 minutes in Northern Ireland.

But Jimenez, limited to a substitute appearance last time out, came to the fore with a swift riposte and then Bennett made amends to put Wolves in front on the night.

Jimenez scored 17 times in all competitions last term and soon doubled his tally for the new campaign, although an apparent knock in the second half forced his withdrawal and put a slight dampener on proceedings.

Wolves will hope to have the former Benfica star back for the next stage as they take on Pyunik, their triumph sealed with a Jordan Forsythe own goal to make it 6-1 on aggregate.

Crusaders, chasing the tie, had started brightly and saw recalled record goalscorer Jordan Owens go close, before Bennett crashed a teasing centre into the top-right corner of his own goal.

But Wolves had their own talismanic forward back in the line-up and the first setback of their campaign was followed by a clinical Jimenez strike, turning to fire past a flat-footed Sean O'Neill.

Buoyed by the crucial away goal, the visitors took control and Bennett scored at the right end, unmarked in the area from a corner to head high into the net.

Wolves and Jimenez were now in full flow and the Mexico international linked up with Diogo Jota on the edge of the Crusaders area with some neat footwork before thrashing in his second and the team's third.

There was less fluidity to the second period and, after Jimenez hobbled off, Jota took issue with a rugged Billy Joe Burns challenge, with Wolves removing the Portuguese, too, prior to Forsythe's misdirected header.

Wolves have signed striker Patrick Cutrone from AC Milan in a deal that could reportedly rise to around £20million.

The one-cap Italy international has left his boyhood club to take up a four-year contract at Molineux.

"I'm very pleased to be here because the club really wanted me. I'm very happy and want to give my all for the team," Cutrone said in a statement.

"The club really wanted me and being able to play in the Premier League for Wolves is fantastic. I just can't wait to get started.

"I've come here to play football. I'll have to settle in initially and I'm looking forward to heading out on to the pitch to play.

"You never stop learning and I'm here to learn new things, but I'll certainly give my all for the team."

Wolves sporting director Kevin Thelwell added: "Patrick is an exciting signing at a very exciting period for this football club.

"We have a strong philosophy under the leadership of Nuno [Espirito Santo] of bringing in the right type of people and developing young talent while staying humble and grounded as individuals, and we feel Patrick perfectly fits into our philosophy.

"We are very pleased to have a player of Patrick's ability join the club and look forward to him being a part of Nuno's squad in another historic season for Wolves."

Cutrone, 21, looked at home when he broke into Gennaro Gattuso's side two seasons ago, scoring 18 goals in all competitions.

Fewer starting chances resulted in a less prolific second campaign, although another four goals in Europe lifted his career tally on the continent to double figures.

That record could prove useful for Wolves as the Premier League club target a place in the Europa League group stage.

Nuno's men take a 2-0 advantage into the second leg of their qualifying tie against Northern Irish side Crusaders on Thursday.

Jesus Vallejo, who joined on loan from Real Madrid, is Wolves' only other new signing to date.

Milan, meanwhile, will likely have to pursue a replacement partner for Krzysztof Piatek in new boss Marco Giampaolo's preferred two-striker system.

Wolves have signed striker Patrick Cutrone from AC Milan in a deal that could reportedly rise to around £20million.
