Inter’s proposal that involved swapping Joao Mario for Sevilla’s Joaquin Correa has been turned down by the Spanish club who simply do not want the Portuguese midfielder according to Spanish newspaper Marca.

Despite this setback, Inter remain keen on the former Sampdoria attacker and have sent an intermediary to deal with Sevilla to try and strike a deal. It will not be easy though given Sevilla did not want a player of Joao Mario’s ability. Inter opted to turn their attention to Correa after they were offered Franco Vazquez by Sevilla in return for Joao Mario but neither Piero Ausilio or Walter Sabatini wanted the former Palermo man.

The 23-year-old made the switch to the Andalusian club back in the summer of 2016 in a deal around the €13 million mark from Sampdoria. The Argentine, who can play on either wing as well as an attacking midfielder has been a regular feature in the Sevilla side making no less than 19 appearances across all competitions, scoring four and assisting just as many.

    Why would they say no to Franco Vazquez? He has an Italian passport and the guy is an excellent amf/ss : exactly what we sorely need! Correa is excellent and when he was with Samp he did well against us but Vazquez + cash and a % of Mario future sale profits wouldn’t be a bad move. I’m all for young guys but we also need men on the field.

    Vazquez would be excellent right about now, why can’t we just loan him with option to buy in the summer; or even obligation since we know he is a proven seria A player.

    As for Jmario: he has class, he can pass alright but he has 0 grinta and is useless in front of goal. He’s strictly a CM with no bite in the final 1/3. Yes he had a good showing at the euros but I don’t think he can cut it here.

    From our squad, excluding our front 3, Borja/Vecino/Brozo are the only mids that can score. That doesn’t work well for Spaletti since his squads normally have more scoring options. None of our fullbacks can score aside from Dambo who only scores when he is fired up because in the same match he let in a goal…

    Credit to Rano and Skriniar would have been bosses in the back and looked dangerous going forward.

    Please management buy some solid mids with balls that can also play the ball and chip in with a goal or two like Cuchu, Drago… even Muntari! We basically have a front 3 and a back 3 and the rest is whtver!

    Damnit I’ll even settle for Miguel Veloso as a regista !

    —- how about asking spalleti about bringing new players to inter, you morons ?!?!
    why ?
    because he has to make a soup out of ingredients you bring from the market and
    you know nothing, as we have seen for many years.
    skier ausilio, bastard !
