Inter striker Andrea Pinamonti could be headed to Sassuolo as part of a deal to bring Giacomo Raspadori to the Giuseppe Meazza, according to reports.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who claim that Inter are exploring the possibility of including Pinamonti in a deal for the 21-year old in order to reduce the fee involved.

Raspadori is known to be a target for the Nerazzurri, with some links considering him to be a potential replacement for Lautaro Martinez should the Argentine depart.

However, Inter are thought to be considering bringing in the Italian while also keeping Martinez, with a view to making him the third- or fourth-choice option behind Martinez and Lukaku.

Chilean Alexis Sanchez is thought to be in Simone Inzaghi’s plans for next season as a key option in attack, but has suffered from recurring injuries during his time in Milan.

Accordingly, having a fourth quality player to rotate in the forward areas is a priority for the Nerazzurri in the transfer market, and Raspadori is regarded as an ideal candidate.

Pinamonti’s inclusion in a deal could tempt the Neroverdi into dealing for Raspadori’s transfer, as he would be a direct replacement at the Emilio-Romagna club in addition to the club receiving a fee.
