Inter Milan has officially informed Porto of their agreement to sign Iranian striker Mehdi Taremi on a free transfer at the end of his contract this summer, as reported by Italian news outlet Gazzetta dello Sport.
While the deal is not yet officially inked, negotiations between Inter and Taremi’s representatives have progressed positively in recent weeks. The 31-year-old striker, currently representing Iran at the Asian Cup, is expected to finalize the agreement upon his return from international duty.
Taremi’s contract with Porto is set to expire at the end of June, allowing him to enter negotiations freely with other clubs and sign a pre-contract agreement for the upcoming summer transfer window. Inter Milan and Taremi’s representatives have reportedly reached a complete understanding on personal terms for the deal.
The Nerazzurri have submitted all the necessary paperwork to Porto, officially notifying them of their intention to sign Taremi and indicating that a pre-contract agreement is imminent. This move confirms Inter’s commitment to securing the services of the Iranian forward ahead of the summer transfer window.
Mehdi Taremi had been on Inter’s radar last summer, but a deal did not materialize due to Porto’s high asking price. Now, with the opportunity to sign him on a free transfer, Inter is set to capitalize on securing the services of the experienced striker.
Reports suggest that Taremi is poised to sign a two-year contract with Inter, including the option for an additional season. This move aligns with Inter Milan’s strategy to reinforce their attacking options and adds depth to their squad as they compete in domestic and international competitions.
