AC Milan striker Patrick Cutrone has revealed his admiration for Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata, as well as team-mate Gonzalo Higuain.
The Rossoneri were heavily linked with a move for Morata in the summer of 2017, with the Spaniard eventually moved to Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid in a £60m deal.
Cutrone has admitted there are features of Morata’s game he looks up to, before complimenting Higuain – whom he is expected to start alongside against Dudelange at San Siro on Thursday.
“[Alvaro] Morata has some features I admire very much,” Cutrone told DAZN.
“He’s quick, and then he’s ruthless in front of goal. He’s always done well and I admire him.
“Higuain? It’s an honour to play and train with him, in training I watch him and learn new things.”
Cutrone also complimented Filippo Inzaghi, a player he grew up watching as a boyhood Milan fan.
“At home I’ve got DVDs with all his goals, I used to watch them as a child. When I met him as Primavera coach, he immediately advised me on what movements to make.
“We had a competition in the penalty box once. It ended in a draw.”
