Inter work on signing Mehdi Taremi after Marko Arnautovic’s prolonged injury. The Nerazzurri are expected to maintain a relatively stable approach in the upcoming January transfer window. Their transfer activity will be related to the recovery progress of Marko Arnautovic and Juan Cuadrado. Hence Inter’s primary focus at this point is laying the groundwork for potential acquisitions in the summer transfer window. Inter have three players on their radar: Tiago Djalo, Piotr Zielinski, and Mehdi Taremi, as per reports.
Tiago Djalo has been a long-standing target for Inter, with Lille previously setting a decent price for the defender. However, Djalo suffered a significant setback when he tore his ACL in March. So he has yet to return to action. Interestingly, he shares the same agent as Marcus Thuram, which adds an extra layer of intrigue to the situation. Although clubs like Juventus and Milan have expressed interest, Inter Milan seems to be leading the race among Italian suitors to get Djalo’s signature.

Among the prospective signings, it is known that Tiago Djaló and Mehdi Taremi will be available as free agents. But in the case of Piotr Zielinski, his decision regarding his future is still pending. So both Inter Milan and Juventus are patiently awaiting his choice. Inter Milan appears ready to make a competitive offer to Zielinski, potentially matching his current annual salary of €3.5 million. But Zielinski likes the way Simone Inzaghi deploys midfielders in his system.
Regarding Mehdi Taremi, while there have been suggestions of a potential January transfer, it appears less likely at this point. His involvement in the AFC Asian Cup will require him to miss a month of action during the winter, making a January move less practical. So Inter’s interest in Taremi is more inclined towards the upcoming summer transfer window. The decision to pursue him is dependent on the performances of Marko Arnautovic and Alexis Sanchez during the current season.
