Tottenham have received a potential boost in their pursuit of Joaquin Correa as Paris Saint-Germain’s negotiations with Lazio for the midfielder have stalled, according to a report by La Repubblica (as relayed by InsideFutbol).
Gazzetta reported two weeks ago that Spurs were eyeing a move for Correa, who was valued at £34m by Lazio before multiple other sources from Italy also reiterated that Fabio Paratici is keen on snapping up the attacking midfielder.
Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla then revealed earlier this week that Lazio had received two offers for the Argentina international, one each from Spurs and PSG.
He stated that while the North Londoners had made a €30m (£25.6m) offer for 26-year-old, PSG had offered €10m (£8.5m) plus Pablo Sarabia in exchange for Correa.
La Repubblica have now asserted that PSG’s talks with Lazio have stalled as the Serie A club are only looking for a straight cash deal for the midfielder.
The report claims that the door could be open for Spurs to hijack a deal for Correa but adds that PSG still have not lost hope of landing the player.

I am not sure if there behind our interest in Correa as Nuno’s teams generally do not employ a number ten. As we saw at Wolves, the Portuguese coach’s teams like to build attacks by overloading wide areas and rely on one of the central midfielders to make overlaps through the middle rather than playing someone in the hole behind the striker.
