Inter to Convene with Camp of Long-Time Target Taremi

The Inter execs will talk shop with the entourage of Mehdi Taremi as they have traveled to Portugal to attend the match against Benfica. They are preparing a Bosman move, while an attempt for January hinges on the performances of Marko Arnautovic and Alexis Sanchez, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs (via OneFootball).

The backup duo will have an important chance in the fifth Champions League fixture. They might both get the nod, with Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram on the bench together for the first time in the season. The Nerazzurri have already qualified. The fixture is sandwiched between the Juventus and Napoli clashes.

The Taremi camp is eager to learn the true intentions of the Inter hierarchy. The center-forward has rich offers from Saudi Arabia. He might pass on them if he has a chance to join a top European club.

Alexis Sanchez is under contract only until the end of the season. Arnautovic will pen a multi-year deal once he’s bought out from Bologna, which will happen in February.

Our Take on Inter and Taremi

It’d be quite the cold-blooded move if the Nerazzurri tried to get rid of the Austrian veteran in January, who has indeed struggled so far, to onboard the Iranian striker. The structure of the operation with the Rossoblù would technically allow them to do just that without losing money. He has to show something in a hurry to justify a €10M disbursement.
