TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Everton is set to join the battle to land Zenit St Petersburg forward Sardar Azmoun.
The prolific Iranian is set to be available for nothing next summer when his contract in Russia expires, and he is inevitably attracting plenty of interest from across Europe having scored nine times in 19 games so far in 2021/22, 90min reported.
Clubs in Italy, Spain, France and Germany have all made contact with the 26-year-old's agents, but there is also strong interest from England.
West Ham, Tottenham and Arsenal have previously been linked with the striker, and Everton is now ready to sign the player.
Azmoun confirmed Spurs' summer bid in September, as well as offers from Lyon, Bayer Leverkusen and Roma, but Zenit refused to let him leave while he was under contract and still so important to the team.
