Brescia talks for Andre Pinto

Brescia are in negotiations to take Andre Pinto on loan from Sporting CP, but the newly-promoted Serie A side want an option to buy.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the 29-year-old centre-back is eager to make his mark in Italian football.

The main issue holding it up is that Sporting would prefer just a dry one-season loan.

However, Brescia will only make the deal if they can have an option to buy at the end of the campaign.

Inter are using Joao Mario to tempt Sporting CP into a Bruno Fernandes sale. "Seeing my name associated with Inter is important."

Fernandes has gone from strength to strength and was a key figure in the Portugal side that won the Nations League last night, beating the Netherlands 1-0.
