Loaned from Lazio with a mandatory purchase clause of around €24m, Joaquin Correa will become a permanent Inter player this summer.

Whether it stays that way come the end of the transfer window, however, remains to be seen, as there are a number of clubs, including Newcastle United, who are said to be interested in the Argentine.

The Magpies have already kicked off what is expected to be a busy summer for them, as their new owners want to build a team capable of competing for titles, meaning new players will need to arrive.

Gazzetta Dello Sport, looking at what could happen at Inter during the transfer window, state ‘some manoeuvres begin to be seen and signals come not from Italy, but from abroad’ when it comes to Correa.

While ‘there are no clear confirmations on the interest of the former maestro Jorge Sampaoli in Marseille’, it’s said ‘English sirens are heard instead’.

However, it’s pointed out those don’t come from top-tier clubs, but more those ‘with wallets full of pounds’.

You know what’s coming next, as ‘above all, the wealthy Newcastle could make a move for the Argentine’, who cost Inter €31m overall (including the initial loan fee).

Now, that doesn’t mean Eddie Howe’s side will definitely come knocking on Inter’s door, credit card in hand, but it does suggest they are keeping an eye on the situation.

He is a versatile player, who could do a lot of good for Newcastle’s attack, but he remains expensive and could prefer to stay at Inter under a manager he knows well (Simeone Inzaghi), knowing full well he will get a chance to play Champions League football next season.

Used mostly as a rotation option over the course of the campaign, the 27-year-old scored six goals and assisted another two in 36 appearances in all competitions.
