Newcastle eye Joaquin Correa for the January transfer window. The Magpies are looking to strengthen their attack as they are struggling with some injuries to their front three. Inzaghi has been using Correa as a substitute, or as a backup. The Argentine has the quality to change the game after coming from the bench. However, he has not impressed enough, when given a chance to start. The Argentine was struggling with injuries last season, and he recently recovered from a hamstring injury.
Inzaghi decided to sign him when he was appointed by Inter as he knows his qualities. Correa was one of the best players under Inzaghi during his time at Lazio. However, at Inter he has faced competition and has failed to raise his levels and fitness. He has missed easy chances in some games and does not threaten the opponent’s box. However, his movements and creativity on the ball can create space for his teammates.
Newcastle eye Joaquin Correa to bolster their attack
The Magpies are looking to increase the quality of their attack as they do not have enough depth. With Isak and Saint Maximan out due to injuries, they are struggling in front of the goal. Correa can play in multiple positions and help in covering for other players. However, he would not like to leave Inter as he can compete in the Champions League and fight in various competitions. Newcastle United are willing to pay around £21.7 to £26 million as per reports.
The Nerazzurri are not impressed by Correa’s performance, and he is just used to give rest to the main players. If Newcastle are willing to offer a good amount then Inter can agree with the deal as they have to generate profit. Also, they can sign a backup on loan or call back Pinamonti if they need a backup striker.
