Inter’s next target in attack after completing the signing of Edin Dzeko from Roma will be Lazio’s Joaquin Correa.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri are on the verge of signing Dzeko, and that once they do they will immediately move to Correa.
Dzeko looks set to be the first signing in attack that the Nerazzurri will make, with the Bosnian close to signing a two-year deal worth a net of €5 million per season, and the Giallorossi having agreed a fee of €2 million plus small add-ons, and ready to replace him with Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham.
Inter are not stopping there, however, and will waste no time in the pursuit of another forward to strengthen the options available to head coach Simone Inzaghi next season after Lukaku’s departure.
Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic remains less likely as a target unless the budget is to increase, with La Viola holding firm on their valuation and Tottenham also interested in the Serbian, whereas Correa looks to be an attainable target.
Inzaghi wants a reunion with Correa, with whom he worked for several seasons while at the Biancocelesti together, and the path looks to be clear to sign the 26-year-old Argentine.
