Zobahan’s Shekari on FC Basel’s Radar
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Zobahan attacking midfielder Reza Shekari has participated at Swiss club FC Basel‘s training.
The Iranian prodigy will likely move to Basel in the summer.
English Premier League champion Leicester City had already showed interest in signing the 18-year-old player.
In 2015, Shakeri was named by The Guardian as one of the best 50 young talents in world football.
He joined Zobahan on a three-year contract in 2015 and made his debut for the Isfahan-based team in Iran Professional League against Sepahan.
Shekari scored his first professional goal on 4 November 2015 in a 2–0 Hazfi Cup victory against Persepolis.
