On-loan Inter striker Andrea Pinamonti hopes that after his loan spell with Empoli this season he can return to the Nerazzurri and cement a permanent place for him.
Speaking to Italian newspaper Alto Adige in an interview published in today’s print edition, the 22-year-old expressed the wish to eventually go back to his parent club and make a name for himself.
Pinamonti had not really managed to find a place for himself at Inter last season, appearing only sporadically from the bench under Antonio Conte.
However, his decision to join newly-promoted Empoli on loan appears to have been the right one, with the Tuscan club one of the surprise packages of Serie A this season as they push into the upper reaches of midtable.
Pinamonti’s goals and overall play have been a big part of the reason for Empoli’s success this campaign as he has struck up a fruitful relationship with coach Aurelio Andreazzolli, with whom he also worked at Genoa.
The 22-year-old is impressing in Tuscany and looks to fit in well, but his ambition is still back at Inter.
“I started with the aim of breaking my record of five goals in the league and I’m already there, so now I hope to make it to double figures,” he stated.
Of his parent club the Nerazzurri Pinamonti stated that “I’ve faced them before, during the match you only think about the team you’re playing for. After the match, seeing those colours made an impression on me.”
And of his goals for the future the young striker stated that “I’m here on loan but obviously I hope to return to Inter to stay there permanently.”
