Wolves are considering counting on Patrick Cutrone for the second-half of this season.
Wolves are pondering a shock recall for forgotten striker Cutrone as they struggle to find a short-term replacement for Raul Jimenez.
Jimenez is still some way away from returning to training after undergoing surgery five weeks ago on the fractured skull he suffered in Wolves' 2-1 win at Arsenal on November 29.
Wolves' preference is to find a new club for the Italian, signed for £16million from AC Milan in summer 2019, but they will consider bringing him back to Molineux if they cannot do so.
Free agent Diego Costa's wage demands would place him outside Wolves' price bracket
Cutrone struggled to make an impact at Wolves, scoring just three times in 24 appearances before leaving in loan. The 23-year-also had an uneasy relationship with boss Nuno Espirito Santo and expressed frustration at his lack of opportunities.
