Inter advance in their pursuit of Mehdi Taremi

Serie A league leaders Inter are advancing in their talks with Porto’s striker Mehdi Taremi. The Nerazzurri want to sign the forward who is currently with Iran at the Asian Cup on a free transfer, with his deal with the Portuguese team expiring in July. Fabrizio Romano suggests that Inter will offer Taremi a two year deal with an option for another season.

The Iranian forward was a subject of many rumours last summer, linking him with Inter’s cross-town rivals Milan among several another clubs. He joined Porto in 2020 for a 4.7 million from Rio Ave and since has gone on to score 86 goals in 171 matches for the Dragons. Taremi finished the previous 3 campaigns by netting 16, 20, and 22 league goals, but this term his form has dropped as evident by the poor return of 3 goals from 15 matches.
