Inter Lining up Lazio’s Correa as Replacement for Lautaro Martinez Should He Join Arsenal

Inter may look to sign Lazio forward Joaquin Correa if they sell Lautaro Martinez to Arsenal.

As reported by Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio last night, the Nerazzurri are lining up the 26-year-old Biancocelesti forward as a possible replacement for Lautaro, should they sell him to the Gunners.

Correa asked for a transfer away from Lazio earlier in the year and has a strong relationship with new Inter coach Simone Inzaghi. That, combined with the Nerazzurri’s participation in the Champions League, may convince the 26-year-old to accept a move to Milan.

Everything depends on the sale of Lautaro to Arsenal, however, and so nothing can occur until the Premier League club pull the trigger.

Correa will return to Rome today and will have a talk with new Biancocelesti coach Maurizio Sarri, which could also be decisive regarding his future.

The 26-year-old Correa, who is contracted to Lazio until 2024, scored eight goals and provided four assists in 28 Serie A appearances last season.
