Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi will be hoping that Joaquin Correa is fit to make the bench against Sassuolo over the weekend after he suffered a knee problem.

This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that it’s not yet clear whether the Argentine will be fit enough to make the bench for Saturday’s Serie A clash, whilst Romelu Lukaku will definitely be out injured.

Inter have already been somewhat shorthanded in attack with Lukaku having been out for several weeks with a thigh problem.

Now, Inzaghi will have his resources stretched even further in the forward positions, as Correa suffered a strain to tendons in his left knee against Barcelona.

It remains to be seen how long the 28-year-old’s recovery will take, but he may be fit to be on the bench on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Lukaku will not be fit to play against the Neroverdi, but is targeting a return against Barcelona next Wednesday.
