Bundesliga giant Borussia Dortmund is considering a move for Zenit St. Petersburg’s Iranian striker Sardar Azmoun, according to the Italian website Tutto Mercato.
Azmoun, 26, is the current leading goalscorer of the Russian Premier League, having scored 11 goals in 15 outings.
The website assessed Azmoun’s value at around €20 million.
The Iranian international – last season’s joint topscorer of the Russian league with 17 – has been linked with some high-profile European clubs in recent years, with multiple sources suggesting Azmoun was on the verge of a move to Serie A club Napoli before the new campaign got underway but eventually decided to stay in Zenit.
Having joined the Russian champion in February 2019, Azmoun has got 41 goals to his name in 74 appearances for Zenit.
