Wolves have confirmed the signing of Italy striker Patrick Cutrone, who joins from AC Milan in a deal worth £16million.

Wolves have been chasing the 21-year-old throughout the summer and have finally got the deal over the line after he put pen-to-paper on four-year deal at Molineux. Cutrone is excited by the move and cannot wait to have a crack at the Premier League.

‘The club really wanted me and being able to play in the Premier League for Wolves is fantastic,’ he said. ‘I’m very happy and want to give my all for the team.’

Meanwhile, Wolves sporting director Kevin Thelwell also saluted the capture and believes it is an excellent signing for the club.

‘Patrick is an exciting signing at a very exciting period for this football club,’ he said. ‘We have a strong philosophy under the leadership of Nuno [Espirito Santo, Wolves boss] 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.’
