TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Arsenal has shown interest in signing Sardar Azmoun as it plans for Alexandre Lacazette’s departure, according to reports.
– Sports news –
Lacazette is wanted by a number of European teams with his contract at the Emirates running down. It expires in June, meaning clubs can finalize a pre-contract agreement with the center-forward as early as January.
Azmoun managed 19 strikes in 24 matches last season as Zenit lifted the Russian league title.
In total, his record for Zenit stands at an impressive 58 goals in 95 appearances. Onze Mondial write that Azmoun has ‘caught the eye’ of Arsenal scouts recently.
Azmoun revealed last month that he had rejected Tottenham during the summer.
