Sources: Wolves struggling to offload Cutrone as huge wages revealed
Wolves are keen to offload flop signing Patrick Cutrone this month, Football Insider has learned.
The 23-year-old is back at Molineux after failing to make an impact during loan spells at Valencia and Fiorentina.
A Wolves source has told Football Insider that Cutrone does not feature in the plans of new manager Bruno Lage and the club are trying to offload him before the window shuts.
One major issue is the £65,000-a-week contract the forward signed when joining from AC Milan for a fee of £16million in 2019.
That has put off buyers, who are not keen to pay the Wanderers anywhere near what they paid for Cutrone two years ago.
There has been little interest in Cutrone so far and the club are likely to have to accept another loan deal.

The 25-times Italy Under-21 international has two years left on his contract at Molineux.
His 28 appearances across all competitions for Wolves have yielded three goals and four assists, with his last start coming against Chorley in January.
Cutrone spent the second half of last season at La Liga giants Valencia but failed to provide a goal contribution in his seven appearances.
Speaking earlier this month, Bruno Lage called for the Italian striker to prove himself on the pitch.
Wolves hope Cutrone will be the second big-name exit from Molineux this summer following Rui Patricio’s £9.8million move to AS Roma.
