Big news from Italy as Arsenal ‘have made bid’ to land striker Italian giants are looking to sell
Arsenal have reported bid £17.2million for Lazio striker Joaquin Correa, reports in Italy say.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta believed that he had a thirty-plus goals a season striker at the club in the shape of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, especially after his first couple of seasons with the club.
But after agreeing that massive contract with the club in the summer transfer window, Aubameyang failed to impress like he normally does and failed to find the back of the net on a weekly basis.
That has led to many reports in the media that Arsenal will look to delve into that transfer kitty in the window and add a new striker to the club, with Correa a player that the club are reportedly eyeing.
The Argentina star, 26, is regarded as potentially available this summer – but only for the right price, And Calciomercato suggest Lazio will hold out for £25.8m.
Ex-Sevilla and Sampdoria ace Correa finished the season with 11 goals and five assists in 38 games, and would be seen as a different alternative to Auba, should he struggle to find the back of the net on a weekly basis.
There is a reason why Lazio are willing to let Correa leave in the transfer window and that is because he is a finisher that adds around 15 goals a season, an in todays football, that is not enough.
Arsenal need to improve their squad with statement signings, so even though Correa is decent, He is not a player that would make much on an impact on this Arsenal side guys
