Former Inter goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano believes that the Nerazzurri have made an important signing in the form of Argentine forward Joaquin Correa.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, the 35-year-old spoke highly of Correa, and of the qualities that he will add to the Nerazzurri after his arrival from Lazio was confirmed yesterday.
Correa comes in as the second major attacking reinforcement of the summer after Edin Dzeko, and his signing gives Inter a different stylistic profile in attack than any players currently at the club.
Head coach Simone Inzaghi worked successfully with the 27-year-old for three seasons while the pair were together at Lazio, and the Italian tactician’s desire to reunite with him was a major factor in the former Biancocelesti man’s arrival.
Viviano believes that this is because the Argentine adds a dimension to the Nerazzurri’s attack which the new manager is looking for, and that he will improve the team.
“Correa is a great player,” he stated, “Inzaghi has already worked with him, and he adds characteristics that no one already in the squad had. Maybe Calhanoglu, but he’s a bit different.”
