    Yes he is very active so he gets alot of chances. To me he is very similar to Luis Suarez. Hard working and always harrasing defenders!


    He has overall good all around abilities but other then heading he doesn't have a world class ability.

    He keeps this up we should get a POTW card soon enough in PES with him! Wouldn't mind adding him to myclub team.

    Everyone wrote this guy off for his lack of goals in the past couple of seasons. I've always maintained his goal-scoring record for Iran was legit but he needed to be doing it at club level to warrant a move to a top league. Obviously, his finishing needs work but his positional game is excellent. His early form with Zenit just emphasises what many of us have said all along, he should have left Rubin/Berdyev much earlier but we don't know what politics was going on there, so let's just be grateful he's free and playing at a club that believe in attacking football.

    Inevitably, now he's banging in the goals, we're talking about his next move - which should obviously be out of Russia. In season's past he's been linked with many top European clubs, where he would have likely sat at the bottom of the pecking order so, who knows, maybe he's seen more game time under Berdyev than had those moves ever come to fruition. I still would have loved to see him at Liverpool and believe he would have made an understudy spot to Firmino his own and really developed into a nice player under Klopp but, while I don't expect him to ever reach those dizzy heights, stranger things have happened.

    While I doubt Zenit will be looking to sell him anytime soon, if for whatever reason they did want to cash in on him, they should be able to at least double their money (£25m+, especially if he is top goalscorer) and these are the clubs I expect to see chasing his signature:

    Wolves - the most recent team he was [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to join this winter before his Zenit transfer. They have now signed Jimenez permanently and he will be the main striker there next season again but Azmoun could provide welcome competition. They will be in the market given that Cavaleiro is pretty unfancied and Bonatini's loan to Ansarifard's Nottingham Forest suggests he might be on his way out on the summer.

    Leicester City - Brendan Rodgers has gone [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to say he needs more support for Vardy (aged 32). Kelechi Iheanacho just hasn't been good enough when he's been called upon. Callum Wilson, Aleksander Mitrovic and Daniel Sturridge have been rumoured in recent weeks but if Iranian transfer obsessives HITC are right in serially reporting on Brendan Rodgers' interest in Azmoun when he was Celtic manager, he may be on the shopping list this summer.

    Everton - Their owner is Iranian, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and they desperately need a striker to add to the goals that come from Sigurdsson and Richarlison. Cenk Tosun is a dud and Calvert-Lewin is still unproven. If Azmoun bags a few more for Zenit this seaons, don't be surprised if Moshiri orders Marco Silva to sign Azmoun.

    Lazio - we know their sporting director [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] on Azmoun and every window they seem to be in the market for a striker. Ciro Immobile leads the line with Felipe Caicedo (the man who Lazio turned to once it became clear they weren't prepared to pay Azmoun's asking price a few season ago) as the only other recognised striker - he's come off the bench as many times as he has started and is hardly prolific (think Azmoun at Rubin). British teams usually have the funds due to the abundance of TV money where as the continental clubs, Lazio would probably need to sell Milinkovic-Savic to free up funds to go shopping this summer.

    Benfica - arguably the Portuguese league is a lateral move to the Russian league but Benfica [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] showed an interest in Azmoun a few summers ago and with Joao Felix rumoured to be on several top clubs radar for a big money move this summer, they will have the funds and the need to bolster their forward line.

    A few Premier League clubs in there as by his own admission, that's where he wants to be playing.

    I'd like to see him have a full season at Zenit as I think he's in the right place to carry on developing into a top striker and, if he has a big season next season and scores a few Champions League goals, his next move could be a big one. These are big ifs but with a prolific full season under his belt, in a year he could easily find himself as back up to the likes of Kane at Spurs, Higuain at Chelsea, Lewandowski at Bayern or even replace Mertens at Napoli or Loic Remy at Lille.

    A lot of good strikers miss good opportunities, no one has a 100% goal rate, even on so-called easy chances.

    Either way, he was robbed of another goal. He scored it, but they called a foul, which wasn't a foul, on his teammate.

    Fun fact: Sardar’s goal today (2’) was Zenit’s quickest goal this season!

    Sardar's current situation is a perfect example of how one can go from "zero" to "hero" in the eyes of many.

    He was harshly criticized after his world cup performance. The fans that have a deeper understanding of soccer, realize that most players are only as good as the environment allows them to be. Good job Sardar!

    The analogy to Suarez is a great one in my opinion. Lots of great movement off the ball and top class instinct, which leads to higher than average chance creation but at the same time more chances = more misses even if you have a decent conversion rate.

    Definitely although Azmoun does go about it differently. Suarez is like a shark with how he tries to snipe the ball for himself but Azmoun is like a Bear.. he chases until they get tired or physically exhausted. His goal and assist versus China are perfect examples of this.

    Yes, also Aguero although is style is different from Azmoun is notorious for missing chances but is still the top scorer of the EPL!
