Inter Milan have scheduled the medicals for striker Mehdi Taremi to arrive on a free transfer from Porto next summer for tomorrow.
This according to Italian news outlet Calciomercato.com. The outlet anticipates that the striker will earn around €3 million net per season.
Inter have been in talks with Taremi and his representatives for some time now.
The 31-year-old had already been a target for the Nerazzurri last summer. He was one of the main names on the club’s list of strikers to sign after their fallout with Romelu Lukaku.
At that time, Inter balked at Porto’s asking price for Taremi.
Meanwhile, the Nerazzurri’s city rivals AC Milan had also been targeting the Iranian international. They were even attempting to get a deal over the line on deadline day.
However, Taremi remained at Porto.
The 31-year-old is now in the final season of his contract with the Portuguese giants. His deal runs out at the end of June of this year.
And Inter have been taking note of that fact.
Inter Schedule Mehdi Taremi Medicals Ahead Of Summer Move From Porto
Inter have been well aware of the prospect of signing Taremi on a free transfer for some time.
Considering the Nerazzurri’s propensity to go after free transfer signings, it was always likely that the Iranian would be on their radar in this sense.
And in the last few weeks, Inter have made their move.
The talks with Taremi’s entourage have been ongoing. And since the start of last month, the 31-year-old has been free to start formally negotiating with other clubs.
Inter have had a verbal agreement with Taremi since last month.
And now, the Nerazzurri are ready to take the next step.
Inter have already informed Porto of their agreement with Taremi and their intention to sign the player at the end of June. And Nerazzurri Sporting Director Piero Ausilio has acknowledged this.
Now with Taremi back from the Asian Cup where he was playing with Iran, the striker is ready to seal his future.
That will meet medicals with Inter. Those are now set for tomorrow.
Then, the striker can put pen to paper to seal his move to the Nerazzurri at the end of the campaign.
Taremi will sign a two-year deal until the end of June 2026. This will contain the option of a further season, ending in June 2027.
And the Iranian international will earn around €3 million net per season at Inter.
