TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Leverkusen's sporting director Simon Rolfes says Sardar Azmoun will make their attack even more unpredictable and powerful.
The German club has confirmed the signing of Azmoun from the summer of 2022, with the Iranian international joining from Zenit St. Petersburg on a five-year contract.
“We’re delighted to have completed this transfer,” said Leverkusen's sporting director Simon Rolfes.
“Sardar Azmoun has been one of Russian football’s top goalscorers for several years. He’s been champion three years in a row there with Zenit, regularly played in the Champions League and shown himself to be of international class at the highest level.
“Our attack gains extra quality with him. Sardar will make our attack even more unpredictable and powerful,” Rolfes added.
Managing director for sport, Rudi Völler said: “He’s very quick, good in the air and has a good sense for space. But he’s not just a goalscorer. Sardar Azmoun also sets up a lot of goals and is an outstanding fit for the Werkself as a player who combines well with others.”
