Roma closing in on Bayer Leverkusen striker Sardar Azmoun

Andy Mattioli

Roma are reportedly finalizing a deal for Bayer Leverkusen attacker Sardar Azmoun.

According to the latest report by Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport, Roma are close to Azmoun after withdrawing from talks for Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata.

Azmoun – 28-year-old Iran international – had been linked with Roma in the summer of 2021 at Mourinho’s request.

Since then, Azmoun had an underwhelming spell at Bayer Leverkusen and could now join Roma on loan.

Negotiations are on-going and the deal is expected to be closed within the next few hours.
