Inter Milan are about to give up their pursuit of Folarin Balogun and turn their attention to cheaper targets in Porto’s Iranian striker Mehdi Taremi.

Inter Milan are keen to add one more striker after France striker Marcus Thuram. With Arsenal’s United States striker Balogun as their main target. Since failing to buy Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea last month.

The main hurdle is that Arsenal set a price of 50 million euros for Balogun. Having previously had a 35 million euro offer rejected by Inter. And seeing rivals Monaco turn down another €40m offer. The Nerazzurri are set to scrap their plans with the Gunners.

Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio insists the club are looking at a number of striker targets. Not just Balogun, with Sky Italia reporting that another target is Taremi.

The Iranian national team striker just turned 31 last month. 80 goals scored in 147 games in three seasons with Porto UFABET

Although Porto set a price of up to 30 million euros. But believes that Inter can negotiate cheaper than that. Because the important factor is the current contract age that enters the last year.

A number of young players can score a lot of goals at youth level. But when coming to the first team It may take them several games to find their first goal in the first team. Or it may be longer depending on the opportunity, confidence and adaptation to the first team.
