Is Empoli Loanee Pinamonti the Key to Inter Transfer Targets?

Inter loanee Andrea Pinamonti, who is currently spending the current campaign at Empoli, is attracting interest from some of the best clubs in Italy and abroad. His performances have grown drastically since starting regularly under Tuscan coach Aureli Andreazzoli, as he currently enjoys his best-ever goalscoring season in Serie A with 9 goals from 24 appearances.

His contract with the Nerazzurri expires in the summer of 2024, making Pinamonti a great transfer market leverage in the summer transfer window ahead of the 2022/23 season. What makes it probable is that the teams interested in the 22-year-old center-forward are the very teams who possess Inter’s main transfer targets.

According to exclusive reports from FCInterNews, Sassuolo and Torino are both interested in the young striker. The former have long-linked targets Davide Frattesi and Gianluca Scamacca in their ranks, whereas the latter have Gleison Bremer.

However, they are not the only ones interested. Ligue 1 outfit OGC Nice, who maintain good relations with Pinamonti’s agent Mino Raiola, are also contenders to sign him in the summer. The French club have already done a ‘survey’, according to the report.

The lifelong Inter supporter and youth product has 22 goals in 94 top-flight appearances, all in Serie A.
