Liverpool ready to offer £52m for the Argentinian 6ft 2ins speed star.

Liverpool have been linked with a couple of forwards this season, the latest name is the Lazio star Joaquin Correa.

Liverpool are interested in signing Correa, and they willing to pay somewhere in the region of £52 million for his signature.

Liverpool have scored 66 goals in 29 games so far this season,this means scoring has not been a problem for the Merseyside giants.This tally gives them the second best attack in top flight.

However, Jurgen Klopp will be looking to add more depth to the team and also provide competition to keep the likes of Saido Mane and Mohammed Salah on toes.

The 25 year old might not be the headline attraction in Lazio side dreaming of their first serie A triumph in 20 years, the honor may always go to the likes of Ciro immobile,Sergej Milinkonvic-Savic and Luis Alberto,but his role in Lazio side cannot be underestimated.

The former Sevilla star has produced 8 goals and 4 assists from his attacking midfield role,Correa is a talent that can float through challenges with lighting speed and before firing rocket shots at goal.

It's no surprise that Liverpool are interested in him,who have perfect the art of quick counter attacks under Jurgen Kloop.

Correa is reported to have £72m release clause,but the Premier league leaders are hoping to test the waters with a bid of £20m less,Lazio will be making a big profit in a player they only signed for £14m from Sevilla.

Sacrificing Correa might as well work better for Lazio as that could in turn allow them to keep Sergej Milinkonvic-Savic, while they have other attacking option to fill the void he has left.
