Roma miss out on Azmoun as he is set to join Leverkusen

TEHRAN, Jul. 27 (MNA) – Roma are expected to miss out on Zenit St Petersburg centre-forward Sardar Azmoun, as Bayer Leverkusen are closing on a deal.

The Giallorossi and Germans were both interested in the 26-year-old Iran international, Football Italia reported.

His contract with Zenit is due to expire in June 2022 and he seems ready to move on for a new experience.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Roma is not going to pursue Azmoun, as he has already pledged his future to Bayer Leverkusen.

The Bundesliga outfit still needs to agree on terms with Zenit, who are asking for circa €20m.

However, they are expected to whittle it down and probably get closer to that fee than Roma were prepared to.

Azmoun has 34 goals in just 52 senior caps for Iran, playing his club football for Rubin Kazan, Rostov and since February 2019 at Zenit.

He found the net 19 times in 29 competitive games for Zenit St Petersburg last season, as well as setting up six goals for his teammates.
