Correa Heading Back to Inter, Arnautovic Put on Sale

Inter have lofty plans for their attack, but they’ll have to find new homes for a few men at first. They are unlikely to sign a new starting-caliber player unless they sell Marko Arnautovic. A potential fifth striker would have to be a youngster or a very cheap veteran.

The Nerazzurri suffered a transfer market blow due to Olympique Marseille’s elimination from the Europa League. Given their position in Ligue 1, winning the cup was the only way for them to qualify for the Champions League, which would have triggered Joaquin Correa’s €10M conditioned obligation to buy. Instead, he’ll be back in Milan waiting for a new destination, TuttoSport informs. The French side paid €2M as the initial fee for the loan. The Argentine staying put for depth purposes would be a last resort.

Arnautovic is poised to have a couple of chances in the final three games of the season, as Inter don’t have anything more on the line. At this stage, he’s part of their future plans only due to the lack of alternatives, Corriere dello Sport informs. He has had an unconvincing season, scoring just four goals and missing 11 games due to multiple muscular injuries.

The Inter front office will evaluate the offers but believes the market will be very tepid for him. Instead, they could bring in some cash thanks to the sale of Martin Satriano, who has hit the net 6 times and provided 4 assists in 34 matches with Brest this season. He has €5/6M price tag.
