|Arsenal and AC Milan leading the chase for Iranian teenager||
Several big European clubs are linked with Rubin Kazan teenage star Sardar Azmoun, who is known as the Iranian Lionel Messi.
Arsenal, AC Milan, Barcelona, and Juventus are interested in the 19-year-old player but after Barcelona was banned by FIFA from signing any new players for next season, Azmoun stated that Gunners and Rossoneri are leading the chase.
"Arsenal and AC Milan offers are quite serious. The Representatives from both clubs had meeting with Rubin Kazan officials on Thursday" Azmoun told 90, a popular Iranian TV program about football.
"I'm extremely happy with these offers. Playing for Arsenal in the Premier League is a dream which comes true for me, but for now I'm concentrating on the remaining games in the Russian League and I try to give my best for the club," he added.
It's believed that Gunners offered £2million for Azmoun, who turned 19 in January.
