Bayer Leverkusen signed Iranian forward Sardar Azmoun from Russian club Zenit St Petersburg for next season on Saturday, according to the German Bundesliga team.

"Azmoun will join the Werkself for the 2022/23 season and has signed a contract until 2027," Bayer Leverkusen said on Twitter.

The Werkself is Bayer Leverkusen's nickname.

Azmoun's contract with Zenit will expire in June and will not be renewed.

The 27-year-old has been playing for Zenit since 2019. He scored 62 goals and had 23 assists in 104 club appearances.

He is a three-time Russian champion with Zenit from 2019 to 2021.

In addition, Azmoun piled up 60 international caps, scoring 39 goals for his native Iran since 2014.

Azmoun played for Iran in the 2018 FIFA World Cup where "Team Melli,” the National Team in Persian, was eliminated in the group stage in Russia.
