Qualified for the Champions League, the Marseille club wants to expand its workforce. And once again, OM could go and find a clever loan.
For this summer, Inter Milan is thinking big. The Nerazzurri are negotiating with Chelsea for the return of Romelu Lukaku and are also on track to recover Paulo Dybala. The Argentinian is free from any contract and, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport of the day, he gave his agreement to join the Lombard capital. An offensive traffic jam which risks being fatal to Joaquin Correa.
At 27, the Argentinian was loaned with obligation to buy by Lazio. And during this 2021/2022 season, he did not really impress (6 goals, 2 assists in 36 games, all competitions combined). With the attack that its leaders are preparing, the Albiceleste international (18 caps, 3 goals) is far from untransferable.
Sampaoli knows him well
Moreover, according to Il Corriere dello Sport, Olympique de Marseille understood this well. The Italian newspaper announces that Jorge Sampaoli would like to recover his compatriot. In search of reinforcements for the next Champions League, the Marseille coach knows the interist striker well since he had him under his orders at Sevilla FC (2016/2017) as well as in the national team.
Unsurprisingly, the Corriere dello Sport expects more of a loan request from the Marseillais, Correa being linked to Inter until 2025. Soon barred by choice competitors, the player could nevertheless be tempted, if he wants to have all his chances to go to the World Cup. Case to follow.
