Inter will make a decision on the future of striker Andrea Pinamonti next week, with the striker expected to finally be sent out on loan and Empoli the favourites but a number of other clubs interested.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the 22-year-old is likely to be kept in the squad over the weekend as the Nerazzurri are lacking in available attacking options for the Serie A opener against Genoa on Saturday.
Pinamonti has been expected to be sent out on loan for much of the summer though he has not yet departed, and he will be considered a useful player for one more match despite not being in the longer-term plans of coach Simone Inzaghi.
After this, however, the Nerazzurri will likely send him out on loan, though the destination remains unclear, and it is expected that the club will still pay half his wages.
Empoli are the club most interested in Pinamonti, but Udinese and Hellas Verona are also interested in bring him in.
Meanwhile, Cagliari have also not given up their interest entirely in the 22-year-old, and Fiorentina could pursue him as a replacement for Dusan Vlahovic should the Serb depart.
