FC Rostov of Russia star Sardar Azmoun is widely regarded as one of the hottest properties in the Russian Premier League, which explains why he has been linked with several top European sides ahead of the January transfer window.
The 21-year old Iranian international has caught the eyes this season with superb performances as well in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) and he has been duly rewarded with strikes against more fashionable sides like Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid.
Clubs like Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam and PSV Eindhoven as well as Liverpool have been heavily linked with Sardar Azmoun admitting that he could leave FC Rostov if the right offer comes in for his services.
He made this known via quotes from Liverpool Echo when asked about the transfer interests from big European sides as follows: “Ajax, PSV or Liverpool? I have no received any offers.”
“If there are, then I’m going to take my time to look into it, whether it’s come from Liverpool or other clubs.” he further stated.
His rise to the top of the Russian league has been remarkable despite the fact that he only made his loan deal from last season permanent before the start of this season and has gone on to score 9 goals in 24 appearances in addition to 16 goals in 22 caps for the Iranian national team.
