Official: Pinamonti joins Genoa

Andrea Pinamonti has completed his €18m transfer to Genoa, on loan with obligation to buy, although Inter will retain a buy-back option too.

The 20-year-old centre-forward completed his medical on Saturday evening and spent last season on loan at Frosinone.

“FC Internazionale Milano can confirm that Genoa CFC have signed Andrea Pinamonti on loan with an obligation to buy,” read a statement.

“The attacker, born in 1999, joined the Nerazzurri’s Elite Academy back in 2013 and has since won two league titles (2016-17 and 2017-18) with the Primavera, as well as one Viareggio Cup (2018) and the Coppa Italia (2018).

“During the 2016-17 campaign, aged just 17, Pinamonti made his First Team debut during a European encounter, followed soon after by his first appearances in Serie A. He’s since made 30 top-tier appearances and scored five goals – the latter all for Frosinone last season.”

It’s reported that Chievo, who were his first club, are owed up to 50 per cent of any future sale, so would pocket €9m from this transfer.
