AC Milan are interested in signing Porto striker Mehdi Taremi and have begun contacts, according to what one journalist is reporting.
Milan continue to be linked with a number of different strikers as they look to inject some youth into a department that currently only has a 35-year-old Olivier Giroud and a 40-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the latter out of contract at the end of the season.
Divock Origi of Liverpool is still the hottest name in the media, but Alessio Lento of Calciomercato.it is reporting that Milan have initiated preliminary contacts for Taremi, the Iranian striker at FC Porto who the Rossoneri faced off against in the Champions League group stages.
Their initial asking price is €20m, which is considered too high by Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara, but a new meeting is expected to discuss Taremi. The 29-year-old has 18 goals and 16 assists in 39 games across all competitions for the Portuguese side, as per Transfermarkt.
