AC Milan are pushing hard to sign a new centre-forward and Mehdi Taremi appears to be the most concrete name at present, a report claims.
According to a report from SportMediaset (via PianetaMilan), the feeling of head coach Stefano Pioli is that relying on Olivier Giroud alone will not be enough for next season given he worked overtime last season and he will turn 37 soon.
The Rossoneri management are oriented towards two names above all: Taremi of Porto and Alvaro Morata of Atletico Madrid, both experienced profiles.
Milan are serious about Taremi, but at least €20m will be needed for the Iranian to leave Porto. Furthermore, should he join the Rossoneri, the Diavolo would have to give up on the idea of signing Samuel Chukwueze as the final non-EU slot would be taken.
Taremi has scored 80 goals for the Portuguese side over the three seasons that he has been there.
