Wolverhampton Wanderers have shopped aggressively since returning to the Premier League last summer (they did so well before then, which is how they got back in the PL), but they appear to have also shopped rather smartly in spending $185 million over the last 15 months.
They’ve almost exclusively targeted exceptional young talents who will only appreciate — massively so, in some cases — during their time at the club. AC Milan forward Patrick Cutrone is the latest youngster set to sign for Wolves, and he fits the bill just as well as Raul Jimenez ($43 million), Jonny Otto ($23 million), Adama Traore ($22 million) and Diogo Jota ($16 million), a few stars of the future who came before him.
According to a report from the Guardian, Wolves have agreed a fee with AC Milan, believed the be in the neighborhood of $25 million, and the 21-year-old is set to undergo medical testing ahead of an official announcement this week.
Wolves secured a 2-0 victory over Norther Irish side Crusaders in their opening Europa League qualifier this week, with the second leg to be played on Thursday.
