In search of a scorer in the winter transfer window, Juventus Turin ticked the name of Sardar Azmoun, who is the priority target of Lyon.
In this period of winter transfer window, each team tries to strengthen itself in the smartest way possible with less costly blows. Efficient and affordable attackers are a scarce commodity. On Tuesday, OM found their happiness with Cédric Bakambu. The Congolese were in the sights of OL but the priority of the Rhone club is for the moment Sardar Azmoun, at the end of the contract in six months. The Iranian striker’s case is however complex for Lyon because Zenith Saint Petersburg is greedy for its striker despite the latter’s contractual situation. Competition is also tough for OL in the Azmoun file, targeted by Juventus Turin during this winter transfer window.
Depay rather than Sardar Azmoun at Juventus?

Alvaro Morata is leaving for Turin and to replace him, the Old Lady has ticked the name of Sardar Azmoun during this winter transfer window. Automatically, the interest of a European giant such as Juventus Turin is a brake for Olympique Lyonnais. But the Rhone club could be saved to everyone’s surprise by one of its former players in this case. Indeed, Gianluca Di Marzio affirms in this midweek that Juventus Turin could favor the Memphis Depay track to the one leading to Sardar Azmoun in January. In lack of playing time at FC Barcelona, where he is no longer an indisputable holder under the leadership of Xavi, the Dutch international pleases the staff of Juventus Turin, who would welcome a loan with optional purchase option. If a quick agreement were to be found between Juventus and Barcelona, OL would then have the field free to sign Sardar Azmoun. According to the latest echoes, the Lyon club has risen to 6 million euros including bonus for the Iranian striker from Zenith Saint Petersburg in recent days. A sufficient offer to finally fill the Russian club?
