Inter Milan forward Joaquin Correa would be open to joining Torino on loan this summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who report that the possibility of a loan transfer for the Argentine came up in recent talks between the Nerazzurri and the Granata for wingback Valentino Lazaro.

Correa is a player who Inter are still hoping to offload before the end of the summer transfer window.

Reports suggest that Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi has essentially lost faith in the 29-year-old.

However, the big questions has always been whether or not any clubs would come forward with interest in Correa.

A few tentative links did emerge earlier on in the window. However, to date there have been no serious offers for the former Lazio, Sevilla, and Sampdoria forward.

However, Tuttosport report, Torino have emerged as a candidate for Correa’s signature in the last few days of the window.

Torino Ask For Inter Forward Joaquin Correa – Player Open To Loan Move

According to Tuttosport, Correa’s name came up in recent talks between Inter and Torino.

The Granata were working to complete a deal to bring back wingback Lazaro. That was their principle objective.

However, aware of the out-of-favour status of Correa at Inter, Torino are also sensing an opportunity in attack.

The Piedmontese club is still hoping to add another attacking reinforcement to Ivan Juric’s squad before the transfer window closes. And they wouldn’t necessarily be put off by Correa’s injury history and erratic form since joining Inter.

Tuttosport report that Torino informally proposed the idea of a one-season loan deal with a purchase option or obligation of around €12 million.

Inter are ready to negotiate with the Granata.

Moreover, the Nerazzurri would be ready to pay part of Correa’s €3.5 million net per season wages to make the move happen.

And, crucially, Correa would not turn a move to Torino down.
