Arsenal’s reported interest in Joaquin Correa played down by transfer expert

Arsenal’s reported interest in Joaquin Correa has been dismissed by a transfer expert.

Who is Joaquin Correa?

Joaquin Correa joined 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 in all competitions, across which he has scored 30 goals and provided 18 assists.

Correa’s natural position sees him playing behind a no.9, usually Ciro Immobile for the Biancocelesti.

However, the 26-year-old is also capable of playing as a centre-forward, and racked up six goals and three assists from 10 games in that spot this past season.
