Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for Argentine attacker Joaquin Correa.

The 26-year-old bagged 11 goals and six assists for Lazio this past season, and his suitors will be keeping tabs on how he does for his country in Copa America.

According to Gazzetta, West Ham United and Arsenal are keen on Correa, who is valued at around €40 million (£34.5m).

The report adds that the English clubs are not interested in paying more than €20m for the attacker.

Lazio are prepared to listen to offers, but newly appointed manager Maurizio Sarri will have a big say in the transfer.

The Lazio ace can operate in wide areas, but he is naturally a second striker.

He would add goals and flair to the team if he moved to Tottenham, West Ham or Arsenal this summer.

All three clubs need additional depth in attack, and Correa seems like a good fit. His direct style of play could help him adapt to the Premier League.

The Argentine has a knack for scoring in big games, and a club like Spurs could certainly use that quality. His versatility will also be useful for his suitors.

He has enjoyed a good partnership with Ciro Immobile at Lazio and could form a similar understanding with Harry Kane if he moves to Spurs.

Meanwhile, West Ham must add quality to their side if they want to do well in the Premier League and Europa League next year.
