Iran’s Alireza Jahanbakhsh on Radar of Premier League Clubs
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Premier League football clubs are chasing Iranian international winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh.
Watford, Bournemouth, and Burnley are among the clubs closely following Jahanbakhsh.
The 23-year-old has been starring for AZ Alkmaar in Holland but they will consider selling this summer for around £9million, according to Daily Mail.
Jahanbakhsh can play across the front line and was first touted to make a major breakthrough by former Manchester United assistant manager Carlos Queiroz who called him into Iran’s 2014 World Cup squad.
Chelsea, Manchester United, Celtic, Ajax and PSV Eindhoven followed him when he initially moved to Holland with NEC where he won their player of the year but he opted instead to move to AZ in 2015.
Technically good on both feet and with an eye for a pass, Jahanbakhsh has continued to attract Premier League scouts this season with his assists and nine goals, some of which have been spectacular.
Watford, Bournemouth, and Burnley have all shown an interest and are weighing up whether to make an offer over the coming weeks.
