Porto have made their asking price for striker Mehdi Taremi clear at no less than €30 million, whilst Udinese want €35 million for Beto.

This according to Sky Sport Italia transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio, who reported live on air via FCInterNews that neither of the major Inter Milan striker targets are going to come cheap.

Inter are still surveying their options as far as a new striker signing is concerned.

One player who it won’t be is Romelu Lukaku. The disastrous soap opera of last month has made sure of that.

And Gianluca Scamacca won’t be the Nerazzurri’s next striker either – the 24-year-old officially completed his move from West Ham United to Atalanta earlier today.

But that still leaves a few different options on the table.

Recent reports suggest that Inter are turning their focus to Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun as their top target.

However, there are a couple possible hindrances regarding the Nerazzurri’s pursuit of the 22-year-old.

One would be the Gunner’s asking price for the player. And the other would be Balogun’s profile, which is not necessarily that of a classic Number Nine as Inter coach Simone Inzaghi is hoping to bring in.

Porto & Udinese Both Make Stance Clear – Taremi & Beto Won’t Come Cheap

In terms of an out-and-out centre-forward profile, Porto’s Taremi and Udinese’s Beto are both options.

Like Scamacca, the pair are tall, physically strong target men who also have the technical acumen to link up with teammates.

In this sense, both would seem to be attractive targets.

However, in terms of price tag, Inter could be looking at a big investment to bring either of the pair in.

According to Di Marzio, Porto have slapped a €30 million price tag on Taremi. They would be relcutant to go below that amount despite the fact that the 31-year-old Iranian international’s contract currently runs out at the end of next June.

Meanwhile, as far as Beto goes, Udinese want even more.

Di Marzio reports that the Friulani have made their stance clear to Inter – they want a fee of €35 million for the 25-year-old.

Therefore, in terms of spending, Inter will have a clear idea of what it could take to bring one of their striker targets in.
