Tottenham Hotspur should hijack Inter Milan’s move for Joaquin Correa, according to Forza Italian Football editor Conor Clancy.
Correa looks set to depart Lazio before the transfer window slams shut and, according to Rome-based newspaper Il Messaggero via Sempreinter, the Argentina international is closing in on a switch to Inter.
The 26-year-old attacker scored 11 goals in 38 Lazio appearances last season and has also also been linked with a move to the Premier League.
Should Spurs sign Joaquin Correa?
A Corriere dello Sport report also alleges Spurs, under new head coach Nuno Espirito Santo, are interested in luring Correa to north London.
Correa has scored 30 goals and registered 18 assists in 117 Lazio appearances since heading to Italy from Sevilla in 2018.
Serie A expert Clancy believes Spurs should look to beat Inter and their Premier League rivals to Correa’s services.
He told TIF: “I think he would be a lovely player at Spurs. He would be a nice fit there.
“Correa can play as a number nine or 10, but he is better at doing a combination of the two jobs.”
