Empoli are looking to bring in Inter striker Andrea Pinamonti on loan this summer, and the club’s president Fabrizio Corsi believes that the club would be a good fit for the player.
Speaking to Italian news outlet FCInterNews while leaving a meeting with the Nerazzurri, the president spoke about how he believes that a loan move at the newly-promoted Serie A side would be mutually beneficial and would aid in the progression of the young striker’s career.
Pinamonti is thought to be in the shop window at Inter this summer, having been out of favour under Antonio Conte and not in the plans of his successor as head coach Simone Inzgahi.
Empoli could be the right destination for him and the club’s president hopes that he can arrive and have a successful spell as the Tuscans look to retain their top flight status next season.
Asked whether a deal was agreed during his meeting with Inter, Corsi stated that “There was an exchange of views between people who have known and respected each other for a long time. I think Empoli is the best solution for the boy.”
Asked about whether his club could pursue Atalanta’s Sam Lammers as an alternative, the Preisdent simply replied “At the moment we have a goal, and that’s what we’re trying to pursue.”
“We are interested in the player but there are conditions we have yet to agree on,” he closed, “At the moment I can’t say more.”
