Arsenal are reportedly looking at Zenit Saint Petersburg’s forward, Sardar Azmoun, if they need to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang spoke over the weekend to clarify what’s going on with his contract at Arsenal which expires next season. That is to say, not very much.
Arsenal need to be prepared and will, of course, be looking around for a replacement.
That’s where the Iranian, Azmoun comes in.
He was once linked with Arsenal back in 2017 when he was playing for Rostov, but a move to London never happened, he moved to ZSP, and we haven’t heard about him since.
With two-years left on his contract in Russia, Arsenal will have to stump up some cash for the 25-year-old who is valued at around £13m.
He has 14 goals and seven assists in 29 matches this season.
Azmoun also has 31 goals in 46 appearances for his country.
