Inter are expected to make an offer for Lazio forward Joaquin Correa, should they sell Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, Chelsea are pushing to sign Nerazzurri star forward Lukaku and are seemingly prepared to pay over €100 million for the Belgian striker, meaning Inter need to quickly lineup a replacement.

Should Lukaku’s sale go through, Inter could offer around €30 million including add-ons for the 26-year-old Correa, who is contracted to the Roman club until 2024.

The Argentinian forward asked for a transfer at the end of last season and recently told Lazio that he wants a move to Inter, to be reunited with coach Simone Inzaghi.

Biancocelesti coach Maurizio Sarri doesn’t want to lose Correa but his departure would solve Lazio’s issues with the liquidity ratio, which is currently blocking them from making any signings.
