Inter Milan are close to signing Memphis Depay to improve their attacking options. The Dutch striker has been looking for a move, as he is getting less game time at Barcelona. Meanwhile, the Nerazzurri want to resolve their problems in front as Lukaku is struggling with injury, and Correa has been out of form. So, Inter have proposed a swap deal where the Argentine forward will move to Barcelona to get Depay in return.
Joaquin Correa is ready to accept the move to Barcelona according to reports. Inter are now negotiating with Depay’s agents, and it now depends on the Dutch international whether he accepts the move. The former Lyon striker wants to excel at Barcelona, but he has struggled to adapt. The Nerazzurri want a partner for Lautaro, and Depay will be a viable option as he can work in the front two systems. While Inter will get rid of Correa, who has failed to impress so far.
Inter Milan are close to signing Depay in exchange for Correa
The Nerazzurri have not been clinical in front of the goal this season. They have missed several opportunities to bury the game, and have failed to retain their lead. Only Dzeko and Lautaro have been carrying the attack, with negligible help from Lukaku and Correa. Depay will bring something different in attack, as he is versatile and can play in a couple of positions. Also, his link-up play will help him to settle into Inzaghi’s system.
The former Manchester United striker came as a free agent to the Blaugrana. His contract will run till June 30, and his high wages are a problem for Barcelona. The Dutch striker has been struggling to unlock his potential, and a move to a new club might help him. While Inter will have some better options in attack to help Lautaro and Dzeko.
