The talented teen has a big decision to make after starring at the World Cup

He's gone to another level in Russia and now Socceroos teenager Daniel Arzani will head to London to sort out his much-talked about club future.

The 19-year-old has grabbed the world's attention after coming off the bench in Australia's three group games at the World Cup.

Contracted for another season to A-League side Melbourne City, Arzani has inevitably attracted plenty of transfer interest with even Juventus reported to be interested.

After the Socceroos disappointing exit from Russia, the teenager is set for some serious discussions to decide what his next step should be. 

“From here I’m heading straight into London where I’m going to be meeting my agent," Arzani said.

“I will spend a couple of days there trying to figure everything out. There is nothing concrete.”

Arzani played exactly an hour across his three World Cup appearances and looked menacing when he came on each time.

Initially at long odds to make the Socceroos squad, Arzani has made every minute with the national team count and feels a much better player for the experience.

“I think I have improved massively,” he said.

“My decision-making is better, physically I’ve improved and also the way I view the game tactically."

In a breakout season for Arzani, the attacker made 18 appearances for current club City, picking up two goals and sealing the A-League's young player of the season award.

Though undoubtedly keen to hold on to the teen for at least another season, Warren Joyce's side have recently secured another young midfield talent in Lachlan Wales and he may well be tasked with filling Arzani's shoes.
