YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 12, ARMENPRESS. A number of leading Scottish football clubs are interested in Henri Avagyan, the goalkeeper of Armenia national U-21 team and Alalshkert club, ARMENPRESS reports The Scotsman newspaper informs.
Particularly, Motherwell, St Mirren and Hibs have all been in discussions about bringing the 23-year-old to the Scottish Premiership.
According to the source, the representatives behind Avagyan’s potential move are the same as those who helped broker Vykintas Slivka’s transfer to Hibernian in the 2017 summer transfer window, and the mooted deal which almost saw Juventus striker Stefano Beltrame join St Mirren earlier this season.
Avagyan is expected to be involved in his nation’s European Championship qualifiers this March. He has one appearance for the national team thus far, a 2-2 draw away to Liechtenstein in the Nations League.
