AEK Athens are pushing to sign out-of-favour Inter Milan forward Joaquin Correa this summer.

This according to Greek outlet Sport24, via FCInterNews. They report that the contacts between the Greek side and Correa’s representatives have been “continuous.”

Correa certainly looks to be a player likely to leave Inter this summer.

The Argentine international spent last summer on loan with Marseille.

The French side had a purchase option in the loan deal. This would have become a mandatory obligation had they qualified for the Champions League, but they failed to do so.

And given that Correa rarely featured for Marseille and failed to score or assist a goal for the club, it is hardly a surprise that they did not decide to sign the forward on a permanent basis.

That means that Correa has returned to Inter this summer. However, the Nerazzurri certainly do not consider the former Lazio, Sampdoria, and Sevilla forward to be a part of the plans for next season.

Moreover, Correa’s contract with Inter currently runs out at the end of next June.

Therefore, Inter will do everything they can to sell the Argentine for good rather than another loan move.

AEK Athens Pushing For Inter Outcast Joaquin Correa

There has been some reported interest in Correa this summer.

This has included newly-promoted Serie A side Como, and Turkish duo Fenerbahce and Galatasaray.

Meanwhile, Argentine giants River Plate reportedly consider Correa a target.

However, the finances involved in a deal would make it difficult for River.

Then, there would be the possibility of a move to the Saudi Pro League for Correa.

Teams in the Saudi top flight have shown little reluctance to spend big on big name players from European leagues, even if their form has not been good.

However, Sport24 report, another serious contender has emerged for Correa’s signature.

The outlet report that Greek side AEK Athens are keen on the former Biancocelesti forward.

AEK finished second in the Greek top flight last season. And they see Correa as a possible big name reinforcement for next season.

According to Sport24, contacts between AEK and Correa’s representatives have been “continuous” in recent days.

It will then remain to be seen whether the club from the Greek capital make an offer that Inter would consider satisfactory,
