Lazio want Sevilla’s Joaquin Correa

Lazio are interested in signing Sevilla playmaker Joaquin Correa this summer and are prepared to pay up to €20m according to reports.

The 23-year-old played just 21 minutes in the Andalusian club’s final four matches of the campaign under the tutelage of interim Coach Joaquin Caparros, who is now the Director of Football.

Il Messaggero report the Sevilla player is on the Rome-based club’s shortlist alongside Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi, Angel Correa of Atletico Madrid and Deportivo’s Lucas Perez.

Los Rojiblancos paid €13m to sign the Argentine from Sampdoria in the summer of 2016 and his market value has soared in the two years since, with any deal expected to be worth double that amount.

Correa netted seven goals and provided seven assists last season at Sevilla.
