Benfica €15m not enough for Pinamonti

Inter have reportedly received 18 offers from Italian and foreign clubs, including €15m from Benfica, for their starlet Andrea Pinamonti.

La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira reports that the Beneamata aren’t willing to sell the forward outright and will only send him out on loan, while they even refused an €8m offer from Parma in January.

The 20-year-old has just come off the back of scoring four times during the Azzurrini’s fourth-place finish in the U20 World Cup in Poland, before joining up with the U21 squad for the European Championships that kick off tomorrow.

He had to pull out of that tournament due to a knee injury.

The former Chievo youth product joined Frosinone on loan last summer and managed to score five times in 27 appearances for the Ciociari this season.

Meanwhile, Portuguese daily sports newspaper A Bola reports that Benfica are interested in making a €15m bid for the young striker, but Inter would want at least €20m to part with him.
