Arsenal could attract Korea in the swap
One of Arsenal’s ways to lower the price of Correa is to send a player in the opposite direction.
This appears to be a potential strategy, as one report recently mentioned the man who might be leaving in the deal.
Sky Sport Italia claim it Lucas Torreira could move to Lazio In order to make room for Korea at the Emirates Stadium.
Torreira spent his entire career in Serie A before joining Arsenal. The move to North London didn’t quite work out, and he left on loan to Atlético Madrid last season, where he won the La Liga title but only as a junior player.
Now, the midfielder wants to return to Italy, where Lazio can be a willing suitor.
If the deal works for all parties, it could be the key to unlocking a potential signature on Korea. However, the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham are still vying for his signature as well.
