Tottenham has made a bid for Mehdi Taremi.

The FC Porto striker might be coming to replace Harry Kane.

Tottenham Hotspur are “betting heavily” on FC Porto striker Mehdi Taremi as a replacement for Harry Kane, having previously presented an offer of €24 million (£21 million), but the Portuguese club are holding out for €30 million (£26 million), according to sources.

What is the most recent update on Harry Kane’s future?

Bayern Munich have had another bid for Kane rejected, and time may be running out for the German champions to acquire the striker, who wants to be settled before Tottenham‘s Premier League opening against Brentford on Sunday.
Ange Postecoglou recently informed the media that he, too, wants a decision made sooner rather than later so that he knows where he needs to bolster his team ahead of the new season, but the striker’s future is uncertain.

As a result, the Lilywhites have supposedly made a bid of €24 million (£21 million) for Taremi, slightly shy of Porto’s asking price of €30 million (£26 million), according to Portuguese media (via Sport Witness).

The striker has “always” wanted to play in England, but Porto will not make it easy for him to leave, and he is protected by a €60 million (£52 million) release clause in his contract, which expires next year.

Jorge Mendes is mediating the negotiations between Tottenham and Porto, providing the opening proposal, and it appears that the north Londoners just need to boost their offer by £5 million to obtain the Iranian’s signature.

Who exactly is Mehdi Taremi?
The 31-year-old attacker began his career in his native Iran, but it is with Porto that he has begun to build a name for himself, scoring 31 goals and providing 10 assists in all competitions last season.

Seven of those goal contributions occurred in the Champions League, suggesting that the Iran international, who has 33 goals for his country, is more than capable of playing at the greatest level, and he has gotten widespread appreciation from the media.

Back in March, journalist Zach Lowy suggested that the 6 foot 1 striker may be “the best Asian player in football right now” as a result of Heung-Min Son‘s poor form last season, and that despite his age, he could be a very excellent purchase at roughly £26 million.

Taremi, on the other hand, is unlikely to be a long-term substitute for Kane, and there may be some concern that he has yet to play in one of Europe’s “top five” leagues at this stage of his career.

If Spurs lose their captain this summer, it is critical that the money they get be re-invested in another great striker, and it is questionable if the FC Porto striker falls into that category.
