Milan are growing optimistic in their move to land Porto striker Mehdi Taremi, who is also interested in the switch.
The Rossoneri had submitted an offer for the Iran international yesterday and were awaiting a response from Porto. Gianluca di Marzio has reported that contacts between the two clubs have been continuous recently and Milan are looking to leverage the fact that Taremi’s contract at the Portuguese club runs out next summer.
Milan have grown in confidence about the deal and they believe that Porto could accept the fee of €15 million, which includes bonuses. But they would want different payment terms as compared to what Milan are currently offering.
An agreement is yet to be found but Milan believe it can be reached, as the saga is turning into a race against time as some technical and bureaucratic issues would need to be sorted out in the move as quickly as possible, with the window about to close soon.
