Leningradets head coach Sergei Kiryakov did not refuse to strengthen the team’s offensive line with Aris striker Alexander Kokorin. His words are reported by Legalbet.
“We understand that it is difficult to find a suitable candidate for the striker position. Everyone is looking for the attackers. But we have options that we can explore in the foreign market.
It would be interesting to work with Kokorin, is that possible? It’s good that you didn’t name Messi… We are considering all candidates. Any last names. “We are considering all possible and realistic candidates for the striker position,” Kiryakov said.
In the summer of 2022, Fiorentina loaned the Russians Aris to the Cypriot for one year. In Cyprus, the desire to keep the Russian striker has been repeatedly expressed. In total, Kokorin took part in 27 games in the local championship last season, scoring 11 goals. He and the team won gold medals last season.
The Russian was preparing for the start of the new season with Fiorentina. He managed to play in one Conference League game and then he was loaned out to Aris again.
Earlier, a foreign coach said that Russian football players were not welcome in Europe.
