Inter Milan are targeting Hertha Berlin forward Dodi Lukebakio as a possible replacement for Joaquin Correa in attack.
This according to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, who report that the 25-year-old Belgian international is on the Nerazzurri’s radar as they look to make attacking reinforcements this summer.
Inter are likely to have to sign at least one forward during the summer transfer window.
This is because Joaquin Correa will almost certainly leave the club. The Argentine has never really established himself at the Nerazzurri since joining from Lazio in the summer of 2021. The club’s intention is therefore to shift him on.
Inter have a few targets in mind to potentially replace Correa.
Dodi Lukebakio Comes Onto Inter Milan’s Radar As Joaquin Correa Replacement
Another player has been added to Inter’s list of targets in attack, according to Sky.
The broadcaster report that the Nerazzurri are keen on signing Hertha forward Lukebakio.
This season, Hertha have suffered relegation from the Bundesiga. The Berlin-based side’s campaign has been a disastrous one, with them finishing rock bottom of the German top flight table.
However, for forward Lukebakio it’s been a strong campaign on an individual level.
The Belgian has scored eleven goals in 32 league appearances across the season. He has also scored once in one appearance in the German Cup.
Clearly, it looks unlikely that Lukebakio will stick around at Hertha now that they will be playing in the second division next season.
According to Sky, Inter are keen on signing the 25-year-old to replace Correa.
Lukebakio has also played for Wolfsburg and Fortuna Dusseldorf in the Bundesliga. He’s also had a brief stint with Watford in the Premier League.
The Belgian has also made seven appearances for his senior national team.
