In their search to sign a new center-forward this summer, Inter Milan have focused their attention on FC Porto striker Mehdi Taremi.
The Italian giants’ pursuit for a striker has been futile, and they frequently find themselves starting over after missing out on many targets.
A deal for Arsenal forward Folarin Balogun has been in the works, but due to the Gunners’ exorbitant asking price, the negotiations are proving difficult.
Monaco, a dominant force in Ligue 1, is challenging Inter for the services of the American striker.
The north Londoners had rejected a bid for €40 million by Monaco, but they want to make another offer soon.
Inter is beginning to take notice of Taremi and has contacted Porto to inquire about his availability.
Taremi would cost Inter €30 million, and his deal with the Portuguese powerhouses expires in 2024.
The 31-year-old scored 80 goals in 147 games for Porto, making him the finest striker in the Portuguese top flight during the past few seasons.
The 49 assists he has proven his versatility.
