Milan Seek Alternatives after Taremi Talks Collapse

Milan won’t sign Mehdi Taremi but fully plan to find a new striker on deadline day. The Rossoneri made strides in the talks with Porto. Though, the deal fell through over issues on personal terms. The striker reportedly changed his intermediary midway through the negotiation, revising the conditions.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, his salary, €1.5M per year, and the commissions to his agents were ultimately deemed too low. Porto announced on their TV channel the forward would stay put on Thursday night.

“The meeting between Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa and Mehdi Taremi determined the permanence of the Iranian striker in the 2023/2024 season and the end of the conversations with Milan regarding his transfer.”

The Rossoneri have inquired about a few options. Stefano Pioli wants a proven player to back up Olivier Giroud. The early components of their shortlist are AZ Alkmaar’s Vangelis Pavlidis, Real Betis’ Willian José, and Leicester City’s Patson Daka. The Zambian marksman could be the easiest to sign following his club’s relegation.

According to Relevo, they tried to put together a swap deal for Youssef En-Nesyri involving Divock Origi. However, they couldn’t come to an understanding with Sevilla.

Our Take on Milan and Taremi

For once, even the Rossoneri, which batted a thousand this summer as far as negotiations are concerned, will have to scramble after missing out on their primary target.
