21-years of age and the potential to be the future of Italian football’s attack: Patrick Cutrone is a bright star in Milan. After entering the Rossoneri senior side in the 2016/17 season from the Primavera ranks, the player has scored 27 goals in 79 appearances – quite the impressive feat considering most of his appearances have been off of the bench.
However, this lack of consistency and starting appearances is starting to frustrate the player. As reported by Radiosei today, the youngster is looking the find space in a starting eleven. With the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain in the summer transfer window, followed by Genoa’s striking sensation Krzysztof Piatek in the January transfer window, Cutrone has been left as a second choice for Gennaro Gattuso especially with the manager switching to a 4-3-3 formation.
In addition to Tottenham and Torino who have expressed their interest in the player, Lazio are now been said to be enquiring about the player. For now, it is only a suggestion, considering the words of Ivan Gazidis – who reiterated his intention to not allow the player to leave – but in reality, Cutrone wants to play more consistently. When the summer transfer window arrives, there may be action that takes place for the Italian.
