The 19-year-old says he has received offers from a host of top club, but that the Catalans are now “out of the picture” following their transfer ban
Rubin Kazan forward Sardar Azmoun claims he has received offers from Arsenal, Barcelona, Juventus and AC Milan.
The 19-year-old has scored three goals in 10 Russian Premier League appearances this term and has revealed that a host of major European clubs are vying for his signature.
Azmoun, who has yet to receive a senior cap for Iran’s national side, admits he is flattered by Arsenal’s interest and ruled out a move to Camp Nou due to Fifa’s sanctions over transfers in the next two windows.
“I have offers from three major clubs. Arsenal, AC Milan and Juventus,” Azmoun told Iranian television show Navad.
“I also had an offer from Barcelona, but due to their transfer ban the club is out of picture at the moment.
“The talks with both Milan and Arsenal are getting very serious. Both clubs have spoken to Kazan.
“But for me it’s important to keep focus on Kazan. We have seven games left, I will decide after these games.
“I’m very proud to have Arsenal looking at me, but as I said, right now I’m only focusing on the Russian league.”
