New Zealand youngster Marco Rojas has confirmed he will make the move to Europe, with the Liverpool and Juventus target saying he is looking forward to showing his skills to the rest of the world after a wildly successful season in Australia.
At just 21 years old, Rojas has set the A-League on fire, providing 15 goals and eight assists for Melbourne Victory, as well as winning the Player of the Season award as voted by his peers in just his second season at the club.
At the start of the year, buzz surrounding the starlet hit an all-time high when both Liverpool and Juventus sent scouts to watch him in action.
Stuttgart and Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga have also shown their interest, and there could be a possibility for Rojas to join fellow ex-Melbournians Mitch Langerak (at Borussia Dortmund) and Robbie Kruse (at Borussia Mönchengladbach) in the German league.
It was the attacking midfielder's ability to score spectacular goals that put him ahead of the pack in Australia, and he is clearly keeping his cards close to his chest as he mulls over where to make the move to in Europe.
Rojas' performance in January, when Liverpool directors were in town to talk about a group of friendly games in the country, was one to be talked about when those directors returned to base in Merseyside. He scored a goal against rival club Sydney and set up another to seal a 3-1 win.
On leaving Melbourne for Europe, the youngster said: "When I get back I'll speak to my dad and we'll sort that out and I'm sure there will be some news coming out soon.
"It's every footballer's dream to play in Europe and I'm over the moon to be able to say I'm about to live that dream very soon."
Melbourne coach Ange Postecoglou said of Rojas: "He's rightly attracted plenty of attention around the globe for his efforts this year.
"We wish Marco all the best as he continues on his very impressive football journey.
"While we would have loved to have seen him stay here at Melbourne Victory for a little longer, we knew we couldn't stand in the way of his European ambitions.
