The transfer window rumors continue to swirl, and the latest talk is that Everton are pushing hard to sign Joaquin Correa from Inter Milan. The Argentine forward has struggled for game time this season, making just eight starts in Serie A, and could be seeking a move away from the San Siro Stadium this summer.
According to reports, Everton are not the only Premier League club interested in Correa, with West Ham United and Aston Villa also said to be keen. However, it seems that the Toffees are the ones currently showing the most interest, having made contact with Inter Milan to find out what it would take to complete a deal.
Correa still has two years left on his contract with Inter, but with the club reportedly viewing him as a “dead weight” due to his poor physical state, a summer move could be on the cards. The attacker’s price tag is said to be high, so whether Everton’s board is willing to meet Inter’s financial demands remains to be seen.
Despite his lack of game time this season, Correa is seen as a player with huge potential. He has posted 103 goal contributions in 353 career appearances, and is strong in his link-up play with his teammates. The 6-foot-2 forward is also flexible, able to play in six different positions across the field.
If Everton do manage to sign Correa, they will be getting a player with a proven track record of scoring and creating goals. He may not be fully up to speed initially, but with his potential and versatility, he could be a valuable asset to the Toffees next season. Stay tuned to see how this transfer saga unfolds.
