Inter will raise their offer for Lazio forward Joaquin Correa, with a new meeting between the parties soon.

As reported by Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla on Twitter last night, the Argentinian forward’s agent Alessandro Lucci spoke to the Nerazzurri on the phone today to further discuss the 27-year-old’s move to the Lombardy capital, with the two parties set to have another meeting soon.

The Nerazzurri will submit an increased offer to the Biancocelesti for Correa, who is incredibly keen to be reunited with coach Simone Inzaghi.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito wants around €30 million for the Argentinian forward, who is contracted to the club until 2024, and is unlikely to offer any significant discounts to Inter, considering the nature of Inzaghi’s departure earlier this summer.

Correa was on the bench for yesterday’s Serie A opener against Empoli but didn’t feature, with coach Maurizio Sarri not relying on the 27-year-old.
