25 August (Reuters) Joaquin Correa, an Argentine attacker, has been acquired by Olympique de Marseille on a loan with a purchase option from Serie A club Inter Milan, the Ligue 1 club said on Friday.
From league rival Lazio, Correa transferred to Inter in August 2021 on a one-year loan with an option to purchase. He contributed to both sides’ victories in the Italian Cup and Italian Super Cup.
In the previous campaign, he also assisted Inter in getting to the Champions League final, where they fell to Manchester City.
The 29-year-old Correa made his Argentina debut in a friendly victory over Brazil in June 2017 and currently has 19 caps. He also won the Copa America in 2021 and the “Finalissima” against Italy in 2022.
He was selected by manager Lionel Scaloni for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar but was released from the team five days prior to the start of the competition owing to an injury.
With four points after two games, Marseille is sixth in Ligue 1 and will face Brest on Saturday.
