Lotito Refuses to Lower €35m Price Tag on Lazio Forward Correa Following Inter’s Offer

Lazio president Claudio Lotito will not budge from his €35 million valuation of Joaquin Correa, far above Inter’s first offer.

As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, talks between the two clubs have been ongoing for some time now, with the 27-year-old Argentinian forward incredibly keen to be reunited with coach Simone Inzaghi.

Lotito is not willing to let the player leave for anything less than €35 million, however, which is what’s holding up a possible deal.

Inter’s first offer was a €5 million with a €25 million buy option attached, which is still €5 million below Lazio’s requests.

Considering that Correa is contracted to the Roman club until 2024, Lotito is not willing to sell the player to a top-four rival with any discounts. This isn’t even considering the nature of Inzaghi’s move to Inter, which left the Biancocelesti president feeling betrayed.
