According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, former Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez is getting closer to a return to Inter Milan, leading the club to reassess their stance on Joaquin Correa.
Sanchez had a strong season in France last season, scoring 18 goals and assisting three times for Marseille.
He departed the French club as a free agent this summer after his contract expired and they chose not to renew it.
The Chilean international wishes to return to Inter. He spent two and a half years with Inter before departing for a brief spell in France.
Inter CEO Beppe Marotta openly identified Sanchez as a goal for the Nerazzurri, implying that the forward could return home.

As they both strive for the same goal, Inter Milan is amenable to Sanchez’s desire to join them.
According to rumours, Joaquin Correa, who has been linked to a transfer to Saudi Arabia, might be leaving the team.
Inter appear willing to look into loaning out the Argentine forward. This decision comes after he was left out of the squad for the season opener against AC Monza.
While actual bids for Correa have yet to come through, Inter’s new position will almost certainly attract interest, opening the route for him to go following a disastrous stint in Milan.
With Correa’s impending exit looming, Sanchez’s comeback becomes increasingly likely.
Sanchez, if he joins the Coppa Italia champions, will provide protection for forwards Marko Arnautovic and Lautaro Martinez.
Arnautovic joined Inter last week after the departure of Edin Dzeko and their withdrawal from the race for Romelu Lukaku.
