Zenit St Petersburg striker Sardar Azmoun has revealed he received an offer from Tottenham during the summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old Iranian is at the current time one of the most prolific forwards in Russian football. Since joining Zenit from Ruben Kazan in 2019, he has scored 58 goals in 90 matches in all competitions including six in his opening seven league games of the current campaign.

Whilst he was a name that never quite appeared in the gossip columns, Azmoun himself has revealed that he received an offer from the north Londoners as they aimed to find a replacement for Harry Kane, who had expressed his desire for a new challenge.

Azmoun also admitted that he is unlikely to depart the Russian giants this season, whether or not Spurs retain their interest.
