Iranian striker Serdar Azmun has previously agreed on his move to “Lyon”, L'Équipe reports.
The report says that Azmun has agreed on a contract for a period of four and a half years.
Now the forward and the French team have to come to an agreement with “Zenit”. Azmun's contract with Petersburgers expires in the summer of 2022. Lyon will try to negotiate with “Zenit” about the transfer of the 26-year-old player already in the winter transfer window.
Serdan Azmun, a Turkmen by birth, moved to “Rubin” at the call of Kazan mentor Kurban Berdyev, a native of Turkmenistan in January 2013 from the Tehran “Sepakhan”. Then, after Berdyev, Azmun moved to Rostov. Together with Berdyev, the striker returned to Kazan in July 2017. Finally, in February 2019, he was officially sold to “Zenit” for 12 million euros.
In the 2021/2022 season, Azmun played 15 matches in the Russian championship, scored 7 goals and scored 1 assists. He also scored 2 goals in 5 games in the UEFA Champions League.
To date, the Transfermarkt portal estimates the cost of Azmun at 25 million euros.
The footballer is an honorary member of the Mekan branch of the Humanitarian Association of the World Turkmens and the Society of Turkmen Culture in St. Petersburg.
