OM will have to pay 10 M€
This same source does not give more details on OM’s interest in Sardar Azmoun, but does specify that Bayer Leverkusen is ready to part with their 28-year-old player for the sum of 10 million euros. Recall that the main interested party had been recruited by the German club at Zénith Saint-Petersburg for an amount of 2.5 million euros, in January 2022.
Since his arrival across the Rhine, Sardar Azmoun has scored 5 goals and delivered 5 assists in 43 appearances in all competitions for Bayer Leverkusen, for… only 15 starts. The main interested party is notably faced with offensive competition from the French Moussa Diaby and Amine Adli, who perform under the orders of Xabi Alonso.
