Lazio have sent Argentinian forward Joaquin Correa on loan to Inter Milan, which will become an obligation to buy for €25m, and have put the 28-year-old Serbian on the top of their shopping list.


According to Sportitalia, the Rome-based side have been in talks with the Eintracht Frankfurt winger's agent Fali Ramadani.

Kostic was at the top of Inter Milan's shopping list a couple of months ago, but interest cooled from the Serie A champions and now Lazio are said to be the frontrunners for the Serbian's signature.

Kostic managed 4 goals and laid on 17 assists during the course of the last Bundesliga season, forming a deadly attacking front-line with Andre Silva, Luka Jovic and Daichi Kamada. The 4 almost lead Frankfurt to the UEFA Champions League group stages but failed to stave off competition from Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg to claim their spot in Europe's premier competition.
