Roma are increasingly convinced of making the deal for Sardar Azmoun permanent.

The Giallorossi are said to be extremely pleased with the Iranian striker; not only by his performances but his attitude and general dedication to the team.

In recent months, the capital club have initiated contact with Bayer Leverkusen in order to discuss the possibility of keeping Azmoun beyond the expiry of his loan.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Daniele De Rossi is the first one to be delighted at the prospect of Azmoun staying around beyond this season.

The player’s future, however, remains closely linked to Roma’s chances of qualifying to next year’s Champions League.

As reported by the Italian newspaper, Roma would be able to activate the €12.5 million option in his current contract only if they were to secure a spot in the Champions League and thus have more financial leeway.
