Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi pushed for the signing of Joaquin Correa from Lazio, with the Argentine his first choice to complete the attack ahead of other players on the club’s radar.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri had also been pursuing Torino’s Andrea Belotti and Chelsea’s Timo Werner as they looked to reinforce their attack, but that the manager felt that Correa’s profile gives their forward line the best tactical balance.

The first attacking arrival following the sale of Romelu Lukaku was a traditional Number Nine in the form of Edin Dzeko, but for the second signing Inzaghi wanted a player who could play as a second striker.

To this end, he chose a player he had already worked with successfully at Lazio, with Correa having spent three years with the Biancocelesti while the Italian tactician was in charge.

Inzaghi sees Lautaro Martinez as being capable of playing as an out-and-out centre-forward, and does not want him restricted to playing as a second striker, and so he prioritized the arrival of a player who could proficiently fill the second striker in Correa.

The coach considers the new signing to have the right qualities to make the Nerazzurri an effective counterattacking outfit, and to be able to both allow Martinez to lead the line and to fill in for the injury-prone Alexis Sanchez.

The Nerazzurri had been after a number of players and saw Belotti and Werner as possibilities among other, but the coach had his mind made up on Correa being the right option.
