Everton have been dealt a major blow with TuttoMercatoWeb reporting that Joaquin Correa could be set to stay at Lazio and fight for his place under Maurizio Sarri.
The Spaniard desperately needs to bolster his attacking ranks at Everton this summer.
Correa would have been the perfect addition for Everton
The South American has electric pace and exceptional balance according to well-renowned scouting website Total Football Analysis.
Correa can play anywhere along the front-line. He was in fine form for Lazio last season with 11 goals and six assists in 38 games.
The Argentinian ace would have added a real level of potency to Everton’s attacking play that they really missed last season.
He was thought to be available for around €30 million (£25m) according to Italy24News.
However, with TMW now claiming that the attacker could be set to stay at Lazio, Everton could be left disappointed.
Missing out on Correa will be a big blow for the Toffees.
