Legendary former Inter striker Sandro Mazzola is glad that the club are close to completing the signing of Joaquin Correa from Lazio.
Speaking to Italian news outlet Tuttomercatoweb, the 78-year-old gave his view that the Nerazzurri’s summer signings are positive, and showed faith that Correa in particular can make a significant contribution to the club’s efforts.
The signing of Correa is set to be wrapped up in the next day or two, and the Argentine will be the second attacking arrival after Edin Dzeko was brought in from Roma earlier this month.
For Mazzola, the 26-year-old as well as Dzeko are the right players to complement the Nerazzurri team and make a significant impact as the team look to defend the Scudetto under manager Simone Inzaghi after a summer of upheaval which saw head coach Antonio Conte and important players Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku depart.
“I really like Correa’s signing,” he said, “In my opinion he will do really well, I like watching him play.”
He continued that “At first glance the team appears to be solidly built, though you have to see the first three games before you can make a more in-depth evaluation.”
As to whether the Nerazzurri could continue to improve, he said “I think so, given the players that they have. Another technical player is Dzeko, who I really like.”
As for the Scudetto favourites, he said “The same teams as always,” and that for Inter “The important thing will be not to give up” in the Scudetto race.
On new signing Denzel Dumfries he said, “I want to see him do well, because at Inter there are great responsibilities on the pitch. Until you wear that shirt, you don’t know how you will react. Maybe, and I am speaking in general, your knees can suddenly become weak.”
