Mehdi Taremi may have vanished as an option for AC Milan but they seem determined to try and sign a striker before the window closes at 20:00 CEST tonight.
Around 36 hours ago it appeared as though Mehdi Taremi was going to complete his move to Milan after a few days of negotiations. However, various obstacles arose that mean there is now a race against time to get things done.
According to the latest from Gianluca Di Marzio, the Milan management are continuing their search for a striker in view of a long and busy season, because they want to give Stefano Pioli a high-level alternative to Olivier Giroud.
The Rossoneri are carefully following two profiles as per Di Marzio and the first is that of Vangelis Pavlidis, a 24-year-old centre-forward who is currently the top scorer in the Eredivisie with three goals in two games.
The second is Willian Josè, a Brazilian forward at Real Betis. In this case, Milan would like to sign the player on loan with an option to buy while the LaLiga team would like an obligation.
