Porto are sticking to their asking price of €30 million for Inter Milan and Tottenahm Hotspur target Mehdi Taremi.

This according to Iranian journalist Hatam Shiralizadeh, who reported on Twitter that the Nerazuzrri’s and the Lilywhites’ interest is real but that Porto would have no intention of dropping the amount that they expect to sell their talisman.

Inter’s search for a striker is coming to a head with less than three weeks before the summer transfer window closes.

The likes of Romelu Lukaku and Gianluca Scamacca are certainly off the table. Meanwhile, Inter look to have all but dropped out of the race to sign Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun.

That has left Porto striker Mehdi Taremi as one of the top names on the Nerazzurri’s shortlist.

The Iranian certainly ticks some key boxes.

Taremi is exactly the kind of profile who Inter coach Simone Inzaghi is seeking for next season. The coach is seeking an out-and-out Number Nine.

Taremi is a strong physical presence who also has the technical attributes necessary to hold up the ball and act as a reference point in the final third. Additionally, his goalscoring record in Portugal certainly stands out.

The question of price could be the key one in determining whether or not Inter sign Taremi.

Porto Still Want €30M To Sell Mehdi Taremi – Not Dropping That Amount

Inter have reportedly already made offers for Taremi, which Porto have turned down.

Reports suggest that the Nerazzurri have bid €20 million and then €25 million for the Iranian international.

However, far from convincing the Portuguese giants to inch downwards in their asking price, the fee that Porto want has remained at the same amount.

According to Shiraliadeh, Porto’s stance is firm. They would sell Taremi for €30 million, but not less.

This leaves Inter considering whether they’re willing to invest that amount in the 31-year-old.

The same is true of Tottenham, who are eyeing up Taremi as a possible replacement for new Bayern Munich striker Harry Kane.
