Currently training in Dubai with his teammates from Zénith Saint-Petersburg, Sardar Azmoun is at the heart of rumors in Lyon, but unfortunately for OL not only in Lyon.
Sardar Azmoun does not yet know which club he will play in two weeks, but the Iranian striker knows that he is highly coveted by two clubs, Olympique Lyonnais and Juventus. But it is for the moment with the Russian club, where he is still linked for six months, that he is preparing for the Emirates side. Even if he does not participate in the collective sessions due to a small physical problem, Sergei Semak indicated on Friday that his striker benefited from an “individual program” in order to resume collective work as quickly as possible. Not wishing to speak about the future of his player, the former footballer lets his leaders manage this file. And it is an understatement to say that the latter are not lacking in offers. If Newcastle’s interest in Sardar Azmoun has not yet materialized, Lyon and Newcastle have advanced their pawns. While Jean-Michel Aulas transformed an initial offer of 3 million euros into a new proposal of almost the double, Andrea Agnelli also entered the dance.
Juventus want Azmoun straight after Chiesea injury
The name of Juventus had circulated in recent weeks regarding the Iranian striker, but things were unclear. The serious injury to Federico Chiesa last Sunday against AS Roma, and the absence for the entire season of the Italian striker, pushed the leaders of the Turin club to go on the offensive. This Saturday the Turin sports daily, Tuttosport, announces that this time Juve’s offer for Sardar Azmoun is ready, there is even talk of an amount exceeding 5 million euros. Not enough to reassure Peter Bosz, who again confided in a press conference on Friday all the good he thought of the Zenith Saint Petersburg striker, the leaders of the Russian club seeming to take pleasure in waiting for the price of Azmoun climbs again and again.
