TEHRAN (Dispatches) — AC Milan has entered the race alongside Italian Serie A rivals Napoli to land Iran’s Zenit St. Petersburg winger Sardar Azmoun,.
The 25-year-old has been hugely impressive since his move to Zenit, amassing 26 goals and 10 assists in 45 appearances across all competitions.
Zenit has said that it would only consider offers in excess of 30 million euros for Azmoun.
Napoli are considered favorites to land Azmoun, but the southern Italian club currently has all its slots for non-EU citizens occupied.
AC Milan is thought to have held initial talks with his Azmoun’s agent, and in the coming weeks it will be understood if the interest will result in real negotiations.
