Simone Inzaghi has raved about new reported Tottenham target's commitment in training
Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Lazio winger Joaquin Correa this summer. Spurs have joined West Ham in the race to sign the Argentina international after another brilliant season. Simone Inzaghi recently raved about his commitment in training.
Correa, 26, has been sensational for Lazio over the course of the last few seasons. Clocking up 117 games, he has had a hand in 48 goals during that time – enjoying probably his best season during 2020-21. Scoring 11 goals, Correa also laid on six assists. He has a contract at Lazio until 2024.
Italian newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport have claimed that Joaquin Correa is a target for both Tottenham and West Ham. It is claimed that the Argentine is rated at £34million, and Inzaghi’s comments about Correa will excite fans. Inzaghi, who was linked with Spurs, raved about Correa in training.
“Correa is a formidable player. He is very intelligent tactically; he sacrifices a lot for the team,” Inzaghi was quoted as saying by The Laziali in April. “I am happy with his brace. When he has no problems and can train continuously, he always proves to be able to play at the highest levels.”
Correa would be a top signing for Tottenham, amid Inzaghi comments
Tottenham are likely to be in need of a new striker this summer. Carlos Vinicius is not expected to sign a permanent deal, while Erik Lamela is in the final year of his contract – and Gareth Bale could also depart. Spurs need a striker that can also play out wide, and in the 10 role.
Correa can do all three jobs. Naturally a no.10, his flair and creativity allows him not only to create goals – but to find the gaps and score himself. Play it into his feet and he is more than capable of scoring as a striker, and his pace allows him to do a job out wide. Pricey at £34m, but a good player.
