FC Rostov striker Sardar Azmoun has revealed he would consider a move to Liverpool should any offer be forthcoming from the club in January.
After a 13-game goal drought at the beginning of the season, the Iranian has started to catch the attention of many top European clubs with four goals in his last five games – including one apiece against Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich in the Champions League group stages.
Jurgen Klopp, who wants to keep Daniel Sturridge for the busy winter schedule, wants to add to his attacking options when the transfer window re-opens, prompting reports that the Iranian forward is one of the Reds’ top targets.
When asked about the reported interest, Azmoun admitted he would have to consider his options if approaches were made.
“Ajax, PSV or Liverpool? I have not received any offers,” Azmoun said.
“If there are, then I’m going to take my time to look into it, whether it’s come from Liverpool or other clubs.”
Prior to Azmoun’s comments, his agent Mehdi Hagitali spoke last month about his client’s future.
“I read about Liverpool’s interest in Sardar, but I can say that at present there have been no formal proposals at all—from either foreign or Russian clubs,” Hagitali explained.
“Azmoun is not looking to leave the club in a hurry. Now his main goal is to become the best striker the Russian Premier League.
“Besides, Kurban Berdyev is like a father to him, and he would like to continue to work with the coach.”
