Inter confirm their striker Joaquin Correa sustained a grade 2 flexor strain and ‘will be re-assessed in two weeks.’
The Argentinean left the pitch in tears during Wednesday’s Coppa Italia clash against Empoli. However, his injury doesn’t seem to be as severe as initially feared.
“After sustaining an injury in Wednesday’s cup match against Empoli, Joaquin Correa underwent an MRI scan at the Istituto Clinico Humanitas in Rozzano on Friday morning,” Inter statement read.
“The scan revealed a Grade 2 flexor strain in his left thigh. His condition will be re-assessed in a fortnight’s time.”
This means the 27-year-old will likely miss the Milan derby on February 6.
Correa joined Inter on an initial €5m loan deal from Lazio in the summer. The Nerazzurri will make his move permanent for €25m as soon as they collect their first point after February 2.
The Argentinean forward has scored four goals in 20 appearances across all competitions this season.
