Torino to make a move for Patrick Cutrone
Torino are showing strong interest in Patrick Cutrone.
According to a report from Calciomercato, Torino will make a move for Patrick Cutrone.
The 21-year-old has four years left on his current contract which expires in 2023.
Cutrone made 78 appearances across all competitions for AC Milan, scoring 27 goals and supplying 8 assists in return.
The 21-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Italy.
As a member of Italy national football team, Cutrone won one cap.
Adding a forward remains Torino’s top priority this summer and Walter Mazzarri will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.
Cutrone has been long term target of Mazzarri as the manager look to bolster his attacking options for the next season.
According to Calciomercato, “Since the arrival of Krzysztof Piatek, Cutrone has had less of a role to play at Milan than he did when Gonzalo Higuain was struggling during his loan from Juventus; which was eventually cut short and the Argentine is now on the team at Chelsea for the rest of the season. Torino have been tracking Cutrone for some time and it is thought that the club will be amongst the frontrunners for his signature come the summer. However, there is a condition that must first be met before the Turin-based club sign the Rossoneri forward. Torino will only be signing Cutrone if either Simone Zaza or Andrea Belotti leave the club, with the club currently not having enough space for another quality forward.”

AC Milan are reluctant to let Patrick Cutrone go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.
The 21-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Torino squad and would be a good buy in the summer transfer window.
