Bologna have identified Inter youngster Andrea Pinamonti as a striker they could potentially move for during the January transfer window, according to Italian media reports.
As per today’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport, the Rossoblu are keen to reinforce their attacking options this month so as to ease the burden on former Inter forward Rodrigo Palacio.
Pinamonti is one of four names Bologna sporting director Riccardo Bigon is monitoring, along with Parma’s Roberto Inglese, Atalanta’s Sam Lammers and AS Monaco forward Pietro Pellegri.
The 21-year-old is widely expected to leave Inter in January after struggling for game time under Antonio Conte this season, making just three cameo appearances in all competitions.
Conte wants a more experienced fourth-choice striker after deciding Pinamonti is not ready to play for the Nerazzurri.
The Italy under-21 international must be offloaded first, however, in order to free up space and create space on the club’s wage bill.
