TBR View: West Ham handed boost in Correa chase as PSG talks stall
West Ham have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Joaquin Correa after the latest reports.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, talks between Lazio and Paris Saint Germain have stalled over the ace.
The Parisians told the asking price is €35m (£30m) after which talks ended. It’s thought the French giants have to first decide on an exit between Angel di Maria and Julian Draxler.
However, Premier League rivals Arsenal and Everton are also thought to be interested.
West Ham hold the advantage after boost in race for Correa
But, West Ham hold an advantageous position over the duo due to their current situation.

There is also a clear plan in place at the London Stadium under the stewardship of David Moyes, who was handed a three-year deal a month ago.
The same can’t be said for Everton, who have only just replaced Carlo Ancelotti. Searching for a new manager proved a tough task for the Blues, who also failed in their quest for Europe.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are prioritising a move for defenders and deep-lying midfielders.
An abundance of quality to West Ham attack
And should West Ham take advantage after receiving a boost in their of Correa, they will be richly rewarded.
The South American is an attacking monster as shown by his form in Serie A last season.
His eight goals in 25 starts shows he can come in to contribute help the spread of goals.
PSG have opened the door for West Ham to snatch Correa from their grasp. The ace would be an outstanding candidate to add some quality to the attack ahead of next year’s Europa League journey.
