Reports stemming from Italy have credited Arsenal with an interest in Lazio forward, Joaquin Correa.
Joaquin Correa’s Lazio stint
Joaquin Correa would join current club Lazio in August of 2018.
The Italian outfit are believed to have paid around £13m to Sevilla to land the Argentine.
Since signing for Lazio, Correa has featured 117 times across all competitions, in which he has scored 30 goals and provided 18 assists.
Correa’s natural position sees him playing behind a natural no.9, usually Ciro Immobile for Lazio.
However, Correa himself is also capable of playing as a centre-forward, and would score six and assist three in 10 games from that spot during 2020/21.
Arsenal make €20m offer for Lazio’s Joaquin Correa
Now, as mentioned above, it appears that the 26-year-old is attracting interest from Premier League outfit, Arsenal.
According to Calciomercato, citing fellow Italian outlet Il Messaggerol, Lazio would be open to selling Correa for the right offer.
It is added that Arsenal have made an offer of €20m, but Lazio would need at least €30m to sit at the table and discuss a sale.

Where would Correa fit in at Arsenal?
If Arsenal do look to sign Correa, where does he fit in?
Arsenal have already missed out on Emi Buendia to Aston Villa, suggesting they are in the market for creative reinforcements.
However, Correa, if Arsenal use him behind a striker, would probably be taking a fair amount of game time from Emile Smith Rowe as, unlike Buendia and Martin Odegaard, Correa does not really operate out wide.
