The 19-year-old also claims to have been approached by Serie A heavyweights Juventus and AC Milan after catching the eye in the Russian Premier League this season with three goals in 10 appearances.

He insists no decision on his future has been made as yet, with all options set to be considered.

The youngster is flattered by the interest, as he is yet to be capped at senior level by Iran, and has revealed that discussions regarding a possible summer switch will continue ahead of the re-opening of the transfer window.

Azmoun told showNavad: "I have offers from three major clubs: Arsenal, AC Milan and Juventus.

"I also had an offer from Barcelona, but due to their transfer ban the club is out of the picture at the moment.

"The talks with both Milan and Arsenal are getting very serious. Both clubs have spoken to Kazan.

"But for me, it's important to keep focus on Kazan. We have seven games left, I will decide after these games.

"I'm very proud to have Arsenal looking at me but, as I said, right now I'm only focusing on the Russian league."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
