Serie A outfit Torino is currently looking for a new attacking option, and our Patrick Cutrone is currently at the top of their list. The young Italian striker has made a name for himself at the San Siro and continues to impress with every performance. He has been a good asset to Milan this season, scoring three goals in his six starts so far, while also bagging an assist.

He has faced competition from Kalinic and Andre Silva, but he has held his own and shown that he wants to be included in the starting eleven. Being only 19, he still needs to mature, but he plays as if he is 25. He makes intelligent runs, knows where to be, creates space well, and has shown an incredible ability to find the back of the net. He is well beyond his years, and I believe that if Milan can keep him, he will be a crucial asset and a permanent name in the starting eleven for years to come. The only problem is that he has attracted interest from so many teams, which puts Milan in a precarious position.

Torino has been struggling to score goals, and their star striker has not been performing as well as expected. Andrea Belotti has not done enough to please ex-Milan manager, Sinisa Mihajlovic. The Serbian tactician is very fond of Cutrone and has been ever since he saw him play for Milan’s youth teams. Belotti has not lived up to his 100 million euro release clause and continues to be a disappointment for the Turin side. His ability to score this season has caused Mihajlovic to look for other options going forward. Other names on their list are Falcinelli and Borriello, but Cutrone tops the list, and his youthful exuberance is something Torino obviously admire.

Whether they want to sign him on a loan, or a permanent deal is yet to be decided, but a move away on loan would only help his development. There are also rumours that Cutrone could be included in a player swap to bring Belotti to Milan. That is far from likely, but it is possible. Although he should be playing for Milan, Montella thinks otherwise, which could hinder his ability to live up to his full potential. A loan move to a solid side like Torino could prove to be a positive move, but it is up to the two clubs to see if it will happen. Either way, our young Italian striker will most definitely be an amazing asset to the Rossoneri in a couple years, and Milan must do whatever they need to do in order to keep him at the San Siro.
