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.
