Sardar Azmoun is on his way to witnessing his minutes significantly increase over the next few weeks.

The Iranian striker – who joined Roma this past summer on loan from Bayer Leverkusen – is said to be highly appreciate by Jose Mourinho.

According to Corriere della Sera, the Special One has been positively impressed by Azmoun’s dedication, work-rate and adaptability to various situations.

In recent weeks, Azmoun proved of vital importance to Roma’s second-half, late comeback wins.

The newspaper suggests that the attacker may be ready to overtake Andrea Belotti and Stephan El Shaarawy in Mourinho’s rotations especially as Roma face their busiest and toughest schedule of the season.
