Porto Marksman Emerges as a Possible Option for Milan

Milan have earmarked Mehdi Taremi to deputize Olivier Giroud, as the talks with Atletico Madrid for Alvaro Morata aren’t going well. The Rossoneri will likely have to activate his release clause to get him, as the Colchoneros have been stiff during the early conversations.

Per Calciomercato, coach Stefano Pioli greenlit tracking the Iranian during a meeting with directors Giorgio Furlani and Geoffrey Moncada. He has scored 80 goals in 147 appearances with Porto in the past 3 seasons.

On the other hand, Taremi wouldn’t come cheap if Milan wanted him. His side asks for €18/20M. The striker has turned down an offer from Al-Hilal. He’s waiting for proposals from Europe and to see if he could really join the Rossoneri.

Per SportMediaset, the 30-year-old has jumped into pole position to round out the attack. The Rojiblancos demanded €20M for Morata. Moreover, the fiscal benefits for foreigners moving to Italy don’t apply to him given his recent past at Juventus.

Our Take on Milan and Taremi

If Il Diavolo is going to sign a veteran to fill such a role, it’d better be somebody cheaper. Otherwise, there are certainly more palatable and younger options out there at these prices.
