FC Rostov’s Sardar Azmoun is open to moving to Liverpool, with the Merseyside club reported as being interested in signing the Iranian footballer.
There have been reports for the last weeks that Liverpool are investigating signing Rostov striker Azmoun as an option to boost the club’s attacking options. The Iranian increased his reputation with a very well taken goal in Rostov’s Champions League win over Bayern Munich.
Ajax and PSV Eindhoven have also been linked with a move for Azmoun but could face competition from Liverpool to land the Iranian international. Despite reported interest from a number of clubs, Azmoun remains “non-committal” on his future, according to the Liverpool Echo.
“Ajax, PSV or Liverpool? I have no received any offers,” he said.
“If there are, then I’m going to take my time to look into it, whether it’s come from Liverpool or other clubs.”
Azmoun’s vague response mirrors what his agent, Mehdi Hagitali, said last month when quizzed about his client’s future.
“If some proposals come, we will look at them,” Hagitali said.
The next two months are going to be very tricky for Klopp as Philippe Coutinho is out for the next five weeks and then in January, Sadio Mane will be with Senegal for the African Cup of Nations and that means that for the next two months, Klopp will need to figure out how to cope without two of Liverpool’s best performers.
Azmoun has been tipped as an option for Klopp in the winter transfer window, while Christian Pulisic and Moussa Dembele have also been cited as potential targets for Liverpool in the January transfer window.
