Everton road paved for transfer of Joaquin Correa with Goodison Park most plausible destination

Everton would find the road paved for Inter Milan forward Joaquin Correa if they were to instigate any transfer interest in the summer window, according to FC Inter News.

Correa, 28, joined the Italian giants from Napoli in January 2022 for a fee of £21million, but has struggled to adjust to life at the San Siro since, netting just three goals from 20 outings this season.

The FC Inter News report shared that the Argentine forward has “already run his course in Milan” and is most likely expected to move abroad in the summer transfer window.

At the moment, Sean Dyche’s side is the “most plausible club on paper” for the striker and if they came forward, the Merseyside club would “find the road paved” for a transfer.

Yet another option

Everton have been linked with every striker under the sun in the last 12 months, and Correa is another interesting option to ponder over.

The Argentine has struggled to impact proceedings at Inter Milan as he would have first wished, but there is still undoubtedly a talented player in there.

Having accumulated 20 caps for the Argentina national team since 2017, Correa isn’t short of experience and would likely look forward to the challenge of Premier League football.

The main issue once again is the goal output of the 28-year-old.

Over the last season and a half, Correa has netted just nine goals for the Italian giants and has never reached double figures for a single league campaign.

Although Everton can’t exactly be picky about strikers they want to sign this summer considering their glaring lack of options, anything near the £21million could be a touch pricy for somebody who hasn’t played in England before and has struggled for goals over the last 18 months.
