Rudy Galetti has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur could land Porto’s Mehdi Taremi for a cut-price fee in the final few days of the transfer window.
Over the weekend, we relayed a report from Calciomercato, which claimed that Spurs had not yet called off their pursuit of Taremi, with the North London club said to be continuing to eye the 31-year-old as a potential replacement for Harry Kane.
The report stated that as AC Milan’s pursuit of the Iran international was proving complicated, Spurs could push through a late deal for the centre-forward, who scored 31 goals and provided 14 assists last season.

Galetti has now taken to social media to claim that Tottenham and Milan have shown the most interest in the striker.
He adds that with Taremi just having one year left on his deal at the Estadio do Dragao, an offer of €25m (£21.4m) could be enough to secure his services.
However, since then, Fabrizio Romano has revealed that AC Milan have become the first to move for the centre-forward, submitting at $15m (£12.9m) bid with favourable terms.
Today is said to be a crucial day as Porto decide whether to accept, but there is no word of a rival Tottenham bid.

Taremi is not a good fit for Postecoglou’s Spurs. If the club do sign any centre-forward before the window slams shut, it will likely be a young player such as Gift Orban or Jonathan David.
It is now starting to seem like Tottenham might not sign any number nine at all and would be content with bringing in a versatile wide-attacker such as Brennan Johnson.
