Monza CEO Adriano Galliani feels that from a financial standpoint, Inter striker Andrea Pinamonti is a very ambitious target.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Radio Anch’io Lo Sport, the executive named the 23-year-old as well as Cagliari striker Joao Pedro as players who the newly-promoted team are interested in but who will not be easy to sign on a financial level.

Monza are looking to make a big impression now that they have reached Serie A, and a key part of their plan is to add players who are clearly up to the level of the top flight.

A couple of signings have already arrived, but all indications are that the Lombard team are not done and that they will look to make more high-profile signings, with their focus being on proven Italian talent.

Pinamonti has been reported to be one of Monza’s major targets for the summer based on his form on loan with Empoli on their own first season back in Serie A last time around, but Galliani admitted that making a deal for him won’t be easy.

“So far, we’ve brought in Ranocchia and Cragno,” the CEO said. “Pinamonti and Joao Pedro are more difficult financially. In any event, we’re building an Italian team.”
