Lazio Forward Correa’s Move to Inter May Collapse as They Focus On Other Targets

Forward Joaquin Correa may stay with Lazio as Inter are focusing on pursuing other targets.

As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, talks between the Biancocelesti and the Nerazzurri regarding the 26-year-old Argentinian forward have been going on for some time now, but the move seems likely to collapse soon.

Inter have not yet presented an offer to Lazio for Correa and are now seemingly focusing on other targets, like Atalanta forward Duvan Zapata.

This means that Correa could stay in Rome this summer, meaning that he will have to wait until at least the January transfer window to secure his move away from Lazio.

Even if Correa stays, however, Lazio may still look to sign a winger, with Eintracht Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic still the club’s top target.

Lazio want around €30 million for Correa and are unlikely to offer any significant discounts, especially considering the nature of coach Simone Inzaghi’s move from Lazio to Inter earlier this summer.
