Sardar Azmoun is a player that Mourinho rates a lot, and one of the many names on Pinto’s radar for this past summer transfer window. The Iranian international recently confirmed Roma’s interest in him. However, Zenit were reluctant in letting him go.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Roma are intent on bringing Azmoun to the Italian capital in the summer of 2022. Azmoun’s contract is set to expire then and thus could join the capital club on a free transfer.
The Iranian striker is reportedly still in touch with General Manager Tiago Pinto.
The player would fit Mourinho’s preferred line-up of three strikers, once Borja Mayoral’s two-year loan comes to an end, along with Tammy Abraham and Eldor Shomurodov.
