According to the latest reports, Wolves have made inquiries about Rubin Kazan striker, Sardar Azmoun.
The 24-year-old is widely hailed as the ‘Iranian Messi’ and has 28 international goals to his name in 45 caps for his country. Azmoun signed with Kazan in 2013 and then spent two seasons with Rostov.
He marked his return to Rubin Kazan in the summer of 2017 and has since gone on to score 17 goals in 77 appearances for the Russian outfit. Coming out of Iran as a prospect, he had an immaculate scoring record for his country at various youth levels.
He registered 7 goals in 6 matches for the Iran U17s, 19 in 19 for the U20s and then 6 in 6 for the U23s. The centre-forward’s growth might have stagnated in recent times but he still remains a scoring threat with a lot of potential in the Premier League.
Wolves are looking for confident heads to bolster the attacking ranks, ever since Leo Bonatini started misfiring in front of the opposition goal. Raul Jimenez has established himself as the starting number nine but a backup option is necessary to see the Wanderers clinch a Europa League spot.
Azmoun’s deal will initially see him make his way over to the Molineux for a £1.75m loan fee. Later, Nuno Santo will have to option to move him permanently for £11.4m.
