    Club career Early years

    Sardar Azmoun started to play club football when he was 9. He began his career at Oghab Gonbad of Gonbad-e Kavus. He also played volleyball and was invited to Iran''s national under-15 volleyball team. After some years, he joined Shamoushak Gorgan, before joining Etka Gorgan, which was playing in Division 1 in Iran at the time.

    Sepahan

    At the age of 15, he joined Sepahan''s youth team. He was also a member of the club''s senior team in Iran''s top flight and won the 2011–12 Iran Pro League, but never capped for the team.

    In the middle of the 2012–13 season, he transferred to Rubin Kazan at the age of 17.

    Rubin Kazan 2012-13 season

    In January 2013, he received an offer from Russian team Rubin Kazan to join them, meanwhile, he had contract offers from two Iranian teams, Persepolis and Esteghlal, as well as a bid from Inter Milan, but he rejected the offers to work with Kurban Berdyev in the Russian Premier League. In his first season at the club, he made 8 appearances for his club reserve team, scoring two goals and receiving one yellow card. He was also picked for the 18 man match day squad on a number of occasions, but failed to make his senior debut.

    2013-14 season

    On 25 July 2013, he made his debut for the senior team in a UEFA Europa League match against Jagodina, coming on as a 73rd minute substitute as Rubin won 1–0. He is the youngest ever Iranian footballer to play in a European match. On 29 August, he scored his first goal in just his second senior appearance for Rubin in a 3-0 Europa League win against Molde, coming on as a substitute in the 64th minute. He made his league debut with a goal and an assist on 6 October 2013, coming on as a substitute in the 72nd minute in a 5–1 win over Anzhi Makhachkala.

    On 27 March 2014, English Premier League side Arsenal reportedly made a £2 million offer to Kazan for the transfer of 19-year-old Azmoun, sparking interest from A.C. Milan, Juventus, Liverpool, Tottenham, and Barcelona as well.

    On 30 March 2014, he scored his second league goal for Rubin Kazan in a 2–1 defeat to Rostov. On 6 April, he scored a goal in Rubin Kazan''s defeat to Zenit St. Petersburg. In a match against Kyrlia Sovetov on 10 May, Azmoun came on as a substitute in the 55th minute, scoring a goal and providing an assist in a 4–0 win.

    On 4 July 2014, Rubin Kazan announced through their official website that Azmoun will remain at the club despite his transfer offers from Arsenal, Liverpool and Zenit St. Petersburg. He scored Rubin Kazan''s goal in a 1–1 draw against Hellas Verona in a pre-season friendly match on 27 July 2014. He scored his first goal of the season in a 1–1 draw against Terek Grozny during the 87th minute. On 30 October, he scored a goal in their victory over Spartak Moscow in the 2014–15 Russian Cup.

    International career

    At national level, he became the top scorer of the 2012 Commonwealth of Independent States Cup, scoring 7 goals in six games. On 5 October 2013, Azmoun was called up to the Iranian national football team against Thailand by Carlos Queiroz. Three days later, Azmoun played for the Iran under-20 team during the 2014 A.C.U-19 Championship qualification in Kerman. In the match against Lebanon, Azmoun captained the team by scoring two goals, assisting one and drawing a penalty. He was selected in Iran''s 30-man provisional squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup by Queiroz. He made his senior debut on 26 May 2014 in a friendly match against Montenegro, coming on as a substitute in the 60th minute for Gucci. However, Azmoun was not included in Iran''s squad for the World Cup, announced on 1 June 2014. He scored his first goal on 18 November 2014 in a 1–0 friendly win over South Korea. He was called into Iran''s 2015 AFC Asian Cup squad on 30 December 2014 by Carlos Queiroz. He scored a goal in the next match, a 1–0 friendly win over rivals Iraq. Azmoun then scored the winner in the second game of the Asian Cup with a great piece of individual skill against Qatar. He also scored against Iraq in the quarter-finals. Iran ended the match 3–3 at extra time and lost in the penalty kicks.

    Personal life

    Azmoun is of Iranian Turkmen origin. He speaks Turkmen and Persian fluently, and is fond of riding on horseback. He decided to wear number 69 at Kazan as a tribute to his hometown''s vehicle registration plate.

    He is the son of Khalil Azmoun, former Iranian national volleyball team player who has coached several volleyball teams, such as Golgohar Sirjan and Javaheri Gonbad.
