Patrick Cutrone is a talented striker who is loved by all AC Milan fans. Growing up in the club’s youth system since a young age, the Italian has been climbing the ranks in the Serie A. Lately, he hasn’t been playing much and his game time is decreasing. Cutrone’s agent, Donato Orgnoni, in an interview with Radio Marte refused to rule out a move for his client by saying; “If Cutrone stays in Milan? We’ll see..”

Last season, Patrick Cutrone out shined both Andre Silva and Nikola Kalinic. Although he made less appearances than both players, he was able to score 18 goals in all competitions for the Rossoneri. That season was his first with the senior team and so far the best in his career.

This season is a bit different for the striker. During the first half of the season, although Gonzalo Higuain was the starting striker, Cutrone played frequently and sometimes started alongside the Argentine. The 21-year-old has started only 10 games this season, scoring three goals. His instinct to score goals is remarkable, similar to AC Milan legend Filipo Inzaghi. This talent is currently being shadowed by Krzysztof Piatek.

Since arriving in Milan, Piatek has been in splendid form. Scoring five goals in four starts for the club, the Pole is the starting striker and is one of the best in Europe. He is quick, technical, and can score almost at will. Although Patrick Cutrone is very talented himself, he isn’t an all-round striker and his main ability is to poach in front of goal. His abilities can’t match those of his new teammate Krzysztof Piatek.

Patrick Cutrone has always expressed his love and desire to play for AC Milan. He was the center of attention at the club and most expect him to become a legend for the Rossoneri. Even though he loves the club, he also needs to think about his career. Playing time is crucial for a player his age to develop and to compete on an international level. Last year, Borussia Dortmund were interested in the player along with several different European clubs. The future of Cutrone at AC Milan isn’t clear, though he will continue to give all his effort as long as he is wearing the red and black jersey.
