It is Taremi's first European move, having played for Iranian giants Persepolis between 2014-2018 where he twice emerged top scorer in the league.

Playing in Europe has always been Taremi's ambition and he will be hoping to power Rio Ave FC, who finished seventh in the Primeira Liga last season, to glory.
