Inter are considering their options to replace Andrea Pinamonti in the attacking rotation with the 22-year-old set for a loan move to Empoli.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that Sassuolo’s Giacomo Raspadori and Gainluca Scamacca, Lazio’s Joaquin Correa, and Monaco’s Keita Balde are their main options.
Of the quartet, Correa would likely be the most expensive, with the Biancocelesti setting his price tag at around €25-30 million.
Meanwhile, the other three targets are all players who have been on the Nerazzurri’s radar for some time and are seen as having the right profile to come into the squad as options up front for Simone Inzaghi.
With the club potentially looking to replace Romelu Lukaku as well as Pinamonti should the Belgian be sold then they would be facing the delicate operation of replacing two strikers, one of whom has been an essential player for them the past two seasons.
However, in evaluating their options they will know that should they strike a deal for a Lukaku replacement at a lower fee then more could be invested in a top option like Correa to take the place of Pinamonti.
