According to what has been reported by Italian newspaper Il Tempo this morning, Lazio have rejected a bid of between €40 and €60 million euros from Atletico Madrid for Argentine forward Joaquin Correa. Correa joined Lazio last summer from Atleti’s La Liga rivals Sevilla and has settled in quickly in Rome; helping Lazio to a Coppa Italia victory with a goal in the final.

Reportedly, Lotito and Lazio have rejected the bid from Atletico out of hand; as the club see Correa as instrumental to the growth and progression of the Biancocelesti.

With Simone Inzaghi and Igli Tare both having been made assurances to keep them at the club amid interest linking the duo to AC Milan; Lotito will be eager to hold on to as many players as possible and the only ‘star’ who will be allowed to leave is likely to be Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
