Reports are out claiming that Iranian striker Sardar Azmoun is attracting Premier League interest.
Russian media sources state Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are chasing the Rubin Kazan star.
Rubin CEO Ayrat Garayev told Izvestia: “Sardar Azmoun is a Rubin player and has a valid contract with our club.
“We are waiting for his return from the Asian Cup and looking forward to having him for the remainder of the season.
“We have had approaches for Sardar, but I see no reason to discuss them until they become official.”
The Premier League trio are stepping up their efforts to land the player – dubbed the Iranian Messi – in a £5m deal.
