Arsenal and PSG leading the chase for Joaquin Correa


Lazio attacker Joaquin Correa has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks.

According to Calciomercato, the 26-year-old Argentine international could be on his way out of the Italian club this summer.

Former Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has taken over at the Italian club and is likely to employ a 4-3-3 system next season.

Correa is not an ideal fit for the system, and Lazio could look to cash in on, with a fee of around €50 million likely to be enough to secure his services.

Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with Correa, with the latter two clubs believed to be leading the race to sign him.

Correa bagged 11 goals and six assists in all competitions last term, and his ability to play across the front line makes him a tempting proposition for his suitors.

He has a contract with Lazio until 2024, and it is understandable why they are demanding a sizeable transfer fee.

Arsenal need to improve their attacking options, and Correa could prove to be a quality addition alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Nicolas Pepe.

Tottenham could use more support for Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, and Correa would be a superb signing for them.
