Reports have come out today that Iran and FC Porto striker, Mehdi Taremi, is getting closer and closer to joining Inter as a free agent in July 2024.

Italian journalist Pasquale Guarro first reported that Inter had held a new meeting with Federico Pastorello, an Italian football agent acting as the intermediary dealing with Taremi and Inter, today to define new details about the deal. According to Guarro, an agreement has been found and Taremi will sign a 3-year contract with Inter in the summer upon the expiration of his contract with Portuguese giants, Porto.

Sources including SkySport Italy and transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano later confirmed this information. Romano outlined that a verbal agreement between Inter and the player had indeed been reached for a 2-year contract with the option to extend the deal for a third year. He continued to explain that contacts between the two parties are taking place every day to iron out the final details and that a definitive agreement could come after the Asian Cup, where Taremi is performing at a very high level with Iran- having two goals in three games so far as Iran has yet to lose.

Mehdi Taremi would replace Alexis Sánchez, who will not have his contract renewed and is destined to leave Inter at the end of the 2023-2024 season. The 31-year-old forward currently has six goals and four assists in 24 appearances across all competitions this season.
