Director Igli Tare confirms Joaquin Correa ‘wants to leave Lazio, there is a possibility with Inter’ and the player has rejected Everton.
The Argentina international is not even on the bench for tonight’s Serie A opener against Empoli, sent straight to the stands of the Stadio Castellani.
“We know Correa wants to leave Lazio, there is this possibility that exists with Inter, we’ll see what happens,” Tare told Sky Sport Italia.
There is also interest from Everton, who are reportedly prepared to pay over €30m, but Tucu Correa has turned them down.
“He is an important player for us, he knows that, it doesn’t entirely depend on us, but is in Inter’s hands. It’s also not just Inter, there is something abroad too, but the lad wants to remain in Italy.
“It has never been a proper negotiation with Inter, there are two parties who want certain things, but it’s not a proper negotiation process.
“The agents are doing hard work, we’ll see what happens. The important thing is that whoever remains must be happy to wear the Lazio jersey.
“Correa has always behaved professionally, even in this pre-season period, so we just need patience to see what happens one way or another.”
Luis Alberto is on the bench too this evening, amid reports of clashes with coach Maurizio Sarri.
“Luis Alberto is just a little behind in fitness terms, it was a simple choice from the coach. There’s no controversy,” added Tare.
