In Italy only Juve, Inter, AS Roma and Lazio Roma are better than Zenit. In Spain only Barca, Real, Atletico and Valencia, in Germany Bayern, Dortmund, Leipzig, Leverkusen etc.

    If he doesn't get offers from clubs better than his current club, then why bother, he's better off being a star in Russia's best club, scoring, playing good, winning national trophies enjoying football and playing in the champions league. Jahanbakhsh has shown us that as well, he was better off at AZ being the star of his team and the Dutch league, playing, scoring, giving assists, having fun etc than being a benchwarmer at FC Brighton. I really believe that AZ has a better team or are at the very least around the same level As FC Brighton.
    the important difference between the two situations is firstly that most midtable teams like even Brighton can't pay 30 million for Azmoun + his at LEAST 4 mil EU/yr salary package. Secondly, Zenit are rich and dont want him to leave, unlike AZ who were auctioning ARJ to highest bidder.

    Only the teams you mentioned can realistically afford somebody like azmoun on their team. Although I would add that milans rebuild is gaining a lot of steam and guys like Hernandez, Bennacer, Kessie, Rebic, highly rumored Szboszlai are legitamitely good young players and Ragnick a world class coach. Plus they are clsoe to securing Europa League football at least this season which is not bad.

    But, unlike what kiankhosh mentioned in the opening post, this has nothing to do with "Azmoun manning up" It has to do with a team that represents an improvement on zenit coming along and agreeing a fee with the russians, somethin easier said than done.

    no chance. They have weghorst, even if he left the transfer fee needed for sardar would be 2x their current record fee. Not to mention wolfsburg are not really an upgrade to zenit.

    From Germany only the top 5 could be realistic destinations, and then you have to subtract bayern and dortmund who are set at CF position. Leaves leipzig who cant afford him and already signed Hwang on cheap from sister club salzburg to replace werner, and gladbach and leverkusen. There only leverkusen could afford such a fee and has showed serious interest in the past tabling offers of 15 ish mil to Rubin Kazan before the WC

    Considering his price tag, I wouldn't be surprised to see him end up in England.

    Plenty of mid table to lower table Premier League clubs who play kick and rush ala FC Brighton who can afford to buy Azmoun. My argument is that it is more wise for Azmoun to move to a better club than Zenit instead of moving to a club with less quality but who compete in the big four.

    I don't think Milan are gonna be in anymore. Seems like they are pursuing Jovic or Schik.

    Really hope Leverkusen pops up again, with Haavertz leaving and Volland able to play wide it would be a good match. Also Europea league with the team guaranteed and a better overall league than Serie A. I just think they won't be a striker unless they sell Alario

    Kicker which is tier 1 for Germans/German football reporting that Rangnick to Milan is off and Pioli will extend for another season at Milan.

    So Milan and Napoli seem out of the question now

    70% chance he stays at Zenit. 25% chance he goes to the EPL. 3% chance he goes to the Serie A. 1% chance he goes to the Bundesliga. 1% chance he signs with Chennai FC in the Indian Super league.

    No one will pay that transfer fee except for an English team. It doesn’t seem like he has any serious interest from English clubs so I think he’ll stay in Russia.
