Two stellar performances at the World Cup have earmarked Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy as a target for Premier League sides Everton and Southampton.

The Sun reports that both clubs are looking at the Huddersfield man, who is now valued at around £18m having only being bought by the Terriers last season for £10m.

Mooy's rise in value comes after a strong first season in the Premier League, with the 27-year-old key to Huddersfield avoiding relegation.

Despite the interest now in him, Mooy has stated that he's happy where he is.

"I'm very happy at Huddersfield, it's a great club for me and I'm proud to be a Huddersfield player," Mooy said at a press conference in Russia. 

Huddersfield could however be tempted to cash in on the Australian if the right offer is made.  

Dutch clubs keen on Daniel Arzani

After announcing himself to the world in Russia, Daniel Arzani has quickly courted global interest with Dutch clubs closing in on the Australian teenager.

According to The World Game, current Socceroos assistant coach Mark van Bommel wants to sign Arzani at PSV - the Eredivisie club he will take charge of after Russia.

Both van Bommel and Bert van Marwijk, who will be a PSV assistant next season, have been impressed by Arzani in recent weeks as he stars for them at international level.   

They aren't the only Dutch interested in the winger however, with reports PEC Zwolle, coached by former Melbourne City coach John van’t Schip, and AZ Alkmaar are also after Arzani's signature.

Arzani himself has said he'll focus on picking a club after the World Cup with his A-League days seemingly numbered

Both are crucial additions for the club after they recently lost James Donachie and had Jason Geria poached mid-season. 

After a few months as a free agent, Matthew Spiranovic has found his next club with Popovic luring his former Western Sydney Wanderers defender to Perth.

Spiranovic joins Glory on a one-year deal and is another big addition to Popovic's back line that has also recently added Ivan Franjic and Tomislav Mrcela.
