Inter Striker Andrea Pinamonti Must Leave For Nerazzurri To Sign New Striker, Italian Media Warn
Inter’s hopes of signing a striker in January are reliant upon them offloading Andrea Pinamonti, according to Italian media today.
Pinamonti has been subject to interest from Bologna, Benevento and Eintracht Frankfurt and Inter can only move for another forward if he leaves first, at least according to a report in the print edition of Corriere dello Sport.
The scenario could only change if Jiangsu Suning, Inter’s owners Suning’s other club, were to allow Italian-Brazilian striker Eder to return to Inter on a loan basis.
Eder wishes to return to his adopted homeland and whilst bringing him on loan would not cost Inter anything, they seemingly do not have much interest in bring the 34-year-old in.
The report goes on to add that aside from Eder other possible signings for the attack include Atalanta’s Papu Gomez, Parma’s Gervinho, Liverpool’s Divock Origi and Udinese’s Kevin Lasagna.
Antonio Conte wants a more experienced option up front after deeming Pinamonti to be not ready to play for a title-challenging side.
