Melbourne Victory’s Marco Rojas has his chance to impress two of Europe's big clubs (AAP file)
All Whites and Melbourne Victory’s attacking midfielder Marco Rojas is reportedly on the shopping list of two of football’s big European clubs, Liverpool and Juventus.
The 21-year-old will have his chance to shine in front of scouts from both clubs this weekend when Melbourne takes on Sydney FC in the A-League.
Should he perform, either of the football giants could make a bid for his signature as early as next week reports the Herald Sun.
Rojas’s contract expires in three months and should Liverpool or Juventus bid for Rojas before the transfer window closes on January 31, the clubs are looking at a fee in the region of the A$750,000 Central Coast received from Celtic for Tom Rogic.
The Kiwi has scored 10 goals in his last 15 games for the Victory and Victory coach Ange Postecoglou has been reported as saying that he was unaware of the interest from Liverpool and Juventus but would be surprised if big clubs were not keeping tabs on the star.
