Inter striker Andrea Pinamonti will soon be on his way out for next season, with the player ready to agree a loan move to Serie A new boys Empoli.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Tuscan club look to have beaten competition from the likes of Udinese and Sampdoria to win the chase for his signature.

Pinamonti has looked close to the exist door at Inter for much of the summer, with the young striker having been out of favour under Antonio Conte and not in the plans of his successor as head coach Simone Inzaghi.

A loan away has always looked the most likely outcome with a number of clubs in Italy and elsewhere interested in the 22-year-old, but up to now no club has decisively moved for him.

The striker’s future could finally be settled soon, however, with newly-promoted Empoli now in pole position to complete a loan move for him.
