Lazio’s Joaquin Correa Was Always Inter’s Number 1 Target, Italian Media Report
Inter are close to bringing in their top target to strengthen their attack this summer in the form of Joaquin Correa.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Argentine has been the top target for the Nerazzurri and for head coach Simone Inzaghi throughout their search for a striker.
Correa will become the second attacking arrival at the Giuseppe Meazza this summer, following the signing of Edin Dzeko from Roma, with the Nerazzurri having agreed a deal for a €5 million loan with a €25 million purchase obligation with his current club Lazio.
Correa could even arrive today so that he can begin his first training session with his new teammates as early as tomorrow and be available for selection during Friday’s clash with Hellas Verona.
The 26-year-old was not the only consideration in Inter’s hunt for a striker, with Borussia Monchengladbach forward having also been on their radar until a knee injury suffered on the weekend, and Torino captain Andrea Belotti also a player who steps were taken to sign.
However, it is Correa who has always been at the forefront of the Nerazzurri’s thinking, and the club have managed to complete their preferred signing.
It is also possible that the Argentine will not be the last attacking arrival this summer, with the club still asssessing Alexis Sanchez’s fitness and not ruling out a late swoop for another striker should the Chilean not be considered reliable.
