According to a source in The Peoples Person, Taremi is a striker target for Erik ten Hag, who is looking for a proven goalscorer.
Transfers for players such as Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen have proven too difficult and complex to complete.
The United manager wants to bring Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta to Old Trafford, but the Serie A giants have set a high price for their prized asset.
Talks with Gian Piero Gasperini’s team are still ongoing in order to find a solution. Even if Hojlund makes the move to United, he will need time to adjust and will not be saddled with the obligation of being the key supplier of goals right away.
For these reasons, a transfer swoop for Taremi has been considered.
Last season, the Iranian was the top scorer in Liga NOS, with 22 goals. He scored 31 goals in all competitions.
With a year left on his contract at Estádio do Drago, the 31-year-old is very much a possibility.
Borna Khoramdel, Taremi’s agent, uploaded a picture on Instagram stories hinting at the fact that he was at United’s legendary stadium.
In the caption, Khoramdel mentioned his agency, Arvand Sport.
This fueled rumors among United’s online fans that Taremi could be a legitimate replacement for Ten Hag.
Khoramdel, however, did not visit the Theatre of Dreams, according to The Manchester Evening News.
“MEN Sport has been informed that the agent was not present at Old Trafford today.” “A peculiar one.”
