Corriere Dello Sport reports that Nottingham Forest has contacted Inter about signing Andrea Pinamonti. The Italian giants are open to letting Pinamonti leave in this window.
Pinamonti joined Inter in 2020 after moving from Genoa. However, he has not been able to cement a place at San Siro. Nevertheless, he did quite well on his loan with Empoli last year. The 23-years-old scored 13 goals in 27 appearances for them.
This summer, a number of clubs are eager to sign Pinamonti. But newly promoted Nottingham Forest are the first ones to make a move for him.
At Inter, Pinamonti’s chances to play for the first team will be limited. Romelu Lukaku was signed on loan from Chelsea this summer, making a sensational return to the San Siro after just one year. It is anticipated that he will once again reignite his partnership with Lautaro Martinez. In these circumstances, it makes sense for Pinamonti to move to Forest for regular game time.
Other Clubs For Pinamonti
Forest are not alone in the race though. Atalanta also want to sign Pinamonti. But the Italian outfit is not willing to increase its offer of £13 million. Inter demand £17 million.
This might allow Forest to swoop in and complete the deal. Before the transfer window shuts, they’re looking for a new striker. Sam Surridge and Taiwo Awoniyi are presently vying for a spot on the team. Surridge scored once throughout the preseason while Awoniyi is yet to score. The Reds supporters are understandably a little concerned.
Forest have done some good business after coming up. They signed Jesse Lingard, Dean Henderson, and also Neco Williams. They will be looking to add Pinamonti to this list.
This is the first time they are in the top flight since 1999. It is great to see a historic club in the EPL, and hopefully, these new acquisitions can help them stay up.
