May 18, 2016 - 19:34

Iranian international striker Sardar Azmoun stated that he is not interested to join Persepolis and wants to continue his career in Europe.

“With respect to Persepolis football club and its fans I’m not going to play in Iran. My release clause is something around €6m to €8m and the Reds couldn’t afford it. It’s while I’m going to continue my career in Europe and hopefully move to a big club,” Azmoun said.
Sardar, who is currently on loan from Rubin Kazan, has been in top form this season as he scored six goals in the last five appearances for FC Rostov.
Rostov, who has dubbed as Russian Leicester City, has still the chance of winning the title as it’s in second place two points behind CSKA Moscow with one game remaining.
According to reports in Russian media, Zenit St Petersburg is considering FC Rostov coach Kurban Berdyev as a successor for Portuguese Andre Villas Boas. If this happens Azmoun will definitely be one of Zenit’s summer signings.
