Celtic To Swoop For Zenit’s Sardar Azmoun


Celtic, who expressed its interest in signing Sardar Azmoun from last year, is close to sign the Iranian Messi.

The Scottish side’s long-awaited switch is ever going to happen, it’s now.

According to The Herald, Zenit St Petersburg is planning a £9 million bid for Celtic’s enigmatic midfielder Tom Rogic.

The Russian champion will have to do a lot better than that however, with Celtic demanding closer to £15 million for the former Central Coast Mariners starlet.

Offering Azmoun as part of the deal, however, might be enough to twist Celtic’s arm.

The 24-year-old enjoyed the best season of his career after swapping Rubin Kazan for Zenit, netting 17 times in all competitions including three in four Europa League matches.

A clinical finisher with a fearsome leap, Azmoun looks every inch the natural-born goalscorer Celtic has needed since Moussa Dembele left for Lyon. If Zenit is willing to offer Azmoun for Rogic, the Hoops might just have to bite their hands off.
