Zenit St Petersburg could cash in on striker Sardar Azmoun, who was allegedly the subject of an offer from Tottenham Hotspur over the summer, according to Championat.

Azmoun has gone from strength to strength since his move to Zenit back in 2018. The Iranian international has been one of the most prolific goal scorers in the Russian top-flight over the last couple of years.

He has been on fire again at the start of this season, having already notched up five goals in the Russian Premier League so far.

The 26-year-old admitted last month that Spurs made an offer for him over the summer but their bid was turned down by Zenit. 

Championat have now revealed the Russian club could cash in on Azmoun in January if he does not sign a new contract as his current deal runs out at the end of the season.

It is explained that the striker wants to leave the club and that Germany is his preferred destination, with Bayer Leverkusen showing interest.

We know that Paratici likes to negotiate for up to ten different players for one position before making a final decision on a transfer.

So, even if Tottenham had tested the waters over the summer with an opening offer for Azmoun, that does not necessarily mean he is at the top of the club’s wishlist.
