We think that the Hammers have a huge advantage over the Toffees in the race for Correa’s signature, however.

That’s according to Italy24News who claim that the Hammers and the Toffees are both very keen to sign the Argentinian ace.

With European football on offer at the London Stadium next season, however, we believe that West Ham could strike a real blow to Everton by winning the race for Correa.

Everton are manager-less at the moment as well. So if West Ham strike whilst the iron is hot, there is no reason why we can’t beat the Merseysiders to the Lazio ace’s signature.

The South American has electric pace and exceptional balance according to well-renowned scouting website Total Football Analysis.

Correa can play anywhere along the front-line. He was in fine form for Lazio last season with 11 goals and six assists to his name in 38 games (Transfermarkt).

At 26, the Lazio ace is at the ideal age to make the move from Serie A to the Premier League.

And we think it is more likely that he will be playing at the London Stadium next season rather than Goodison Park.
