Iran international Arash Afshin said his probable move to Ligue 1 side OSC Lille has not yet been finalized and it might be canceled. Afshin is currently serving for Foolad in Iran Pro League.
“I will visit France next week and we will negotiate with the officials of OSC Lille. I may also go for medical examinations too but the move has not been finalized until now.” Arash Afshin remarked about his status. He had already trained with the club last month, but had to return to Iran early due to national team duties.
“To be honest it’s a great honor for me to play for Foolad if I don’t join French club. But the expectations from me will be high in France and I can improve my class if I go France.” Arash Afshin added.
It’s worth noting that the Tehran base club, Esteghlal FC, have set sight on Arash but the negotiations between Foolad and Esteghlal over transferring Afshin failed. Amir Ghalenoei, the head coach of Esteghlal, is interested in the services of Arash Afshin but Foolad demand “much money” from Esteghlal for this move.
