PressTV – TEHRAN, Iranian footballer Mehdi Taremi is apparently on transfer radar to professional Croatian football club Građanski nogometni klub Dinamo Zagreb, commonly referred to as GNK Dinamo Zagreb, thanks to his great performance during the third round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification tournament.
According to a report published by Fars news agency on Saturday, the Zagreb-based club is considering to sign the 24-year-old, who plays as a forward for Persian Gulf Pro League club Persepolis as well as the Iranian national football team.
On June 12, the Iranian team, which has so far kept its clean sheet record unblemished at the third round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification tournament, became the first Asian team – and the third squad after Brazil and hosts Russia – to secure its place at the quadrennial international football tournament.
Iranian national football team defeated Uzbekistan 2-0 at Tehran’s Azadi Stadium.
Taremi found the back of the net from inside the area in the 88th minute and finished off the White Wolves.
