Wolves are on the verge of signing AC Milan striker Patrick Cutrone for a fee of £20m. The 21-year-old is expected to undergo a medical on Tuesday before the transfer is formalised.

The Express & Star report that the deal is an initial £16m with the remaining £4m coming from add-ons. This has left a number of fans at Molineux thrilled by the news, especially after how little they paid for him.

Cutrone had a breakthrough year in the 2017/18 season where he netted 16 goals in 46 matches before following that up last season with nine goals in 43 appearances. It is thought he will arrive as an alternative option to Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota.

One supporter claimed that the deal was an absolute coup in today’s market which was backed up by another fan who said no wonder no one buys British players anymore, accompanying his tweet with an image of Oliver McBurnie’s reported £20m move to Premier League newcomers Sheffield United.

Whilst Matt Targett’s move to Aston Villa and Matej Vydra’s transfer to Burnley, both of similar fees, were also drawn for comparison.

Others simply labelled the transfer a ridiculous bargain and as cheap as chips with one member of the Wolves fanbase believing that it proves going abroad for talent brings you much better value for money.
