Persepolis striker has agreed a two-year contract to join an unknown Greek side, according to several reports in the local media.

“We signed the two-year contract with the Greek official who came to Tehran. Taremi will now wait for the work permit then he will fly to Greece,” Taremi’s agent Abdolsamad Ebrahimi said.

The name of the club is yet to be announced but it’s rumored to be PAOK FC or Olympiacos FC while both sides have grabbed next season’s UEFA Champions League spots.

Taremi, who joined Persepolis in the 2014 summer with a two-year contract, was one of the key members of Branko Ivankovic’s team who nearly missed the title and finished second on the goal difference in the IPL 2015-16 season.

He scored 18 goals in 23 appearances for Persepolis to win the 2015-16 Professional League top scorer award.

Persepolis tried to keep the 24-year old striker but he was eager to continue his career in Europe.
