Meet Iran’s Lionel Messi

His name is Sardar Azmoun, he is 19 years old and the English Premier league team Arsenal has just made a $3.3 million offer to buy him.

Dubbed the “Iranian Lionel Messi”, Sardar has been playing for the Russian team Rubin Kazan, where he has been described as:

one of the brightest young talents the Russian Premier League has to offer.

And where is Sardar from? Esfahan, of course 🙂

Wish him the best, and hope to see him in Arsenal next year.

Here is a Sardar in action.
