Rangers 'have the advantage' in chase for striker PL side paid £16m for - report

Rangers have been linked with a move for Wolves striker Patrick Cutrone according to reports in Italy – with the Gers and Celtic Vigo apparently having the edge over Serie A sides in the chase for the Italian.

Cutrone has struggled to make any sort of impact at Molinuex and is out of contract next summer and Rangers could be set to bring him to Ibrox on loan.

According to Calciomercato.it, Rangers and Celtic ‘have the advantage’ over Italian sides, with a move to Spain offering him a permanent exit from the Premier League side.

The 23-year-old has spent the last two and a half years out on loan with Fiorentina, Valencia and Empoli since arriving at Wolves from AC Milan for £16million in 2019.

Cutrone only scored three times in 28 Serie A games for Empoli during his most recent loan spell and Wolves want to try recoup something before losing him for free next summer.

Italian could be an interesting option for Rangers if the price is right

Obviously, Wolves aren’t going to get anywhere near their £16million back but if Rangers can strike the right deal, Cutrone could be a fantastic signing.

If the Gers’ interest is real, it would suggest that one of Kemar Roofe or Fashion Sakala are moving on this summer with the duo joining Alfredo Morelos and Antonio Colak in competition for the starting spot in attack.

The chance to move to Rangers and revive his career with a title challenge and European football is one that would surely entice Cutrone.

At only 23, Rangers could end up getting a very good deal indeed by bringing the Italian striker to Scotland and giving him the platform to kickstart his career.
