Cagliari could move to sign Inter striker Andrea Pinamonti, but will only do so after Giovanni Simeone departs, and on the condition that he lowers his salary.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper la Repubblica, who report that the Rossoblu like the player but would have difficulties paying his current wages, which are a net of €2 million per season.

Pinamonti is not thought to be in the Nerazzurri’s plans next season, with the 22-year-old having been out of favour last season and not seen as a contributor by newly-appointed head coach Antonio Conte.

A number of clubs have shown an interest in Pinamonti, with Cagliari among them as they look to potentially replace Argentine striker Simeone who is linked with a move away to Marseille, but they will only move for Pinamonti after the departure of Simeone.

Moreover, the Rossoblu will not sign the 22-year-old on his current wages, and would only bring him in on a reduced salary.
