Inter have officially completed the signing of Joaquin Correa from Lazio after the clause in their initial loan deal for the Argentine obligating them to purchase him permanently was activated.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInter1908, who note that per the terms of the initial loan announced by Lazio, the Nerazzurri will have completed his permanent signing for €25 million plus a potential €1 million in add-ons.
Inter signed Correa late in the summer transfer window as their last attacking signing in the wake of Romelu Lukaku’s sale to Chelsea, though he was not immediately signed permanently.
The 27-year-old initially arrived on a paid loan worth €5 million plus €1 million in add-ons, but the deal contained a clause that would mean the Nerazzurri were obligated to buy him on a permanent basis after the first point collected in Serie A after February 2.
With yesterday evening’s Serie A draw with Napoli, this clause was triggered, and so the Nerazzurri have now signed the Argentine permanently for the stipulated €25 million plus add-ons.
