Socceroo attacker Andrew Nabbout has chipped in his five cents to Daniel Arzani amidst speculation the teenager could be heading to Europe.
The Melbourne City winger played in all three World Cup games as a substitute and impressed against Denmark and Peru.
Arzani has been linked with Manchester City, Bayer Leverkusen, PSV Eindhoven and NAC Breda.
The 19-year-old said he is off to London to meet with his agent after the Socceroos were eliminated from Russia 2018 on Wednesday morning.
Nabbout, who played as a No.9 at this World Cup before injuring his shoulder, had stints in the A-League and Malaysia and now finds himself in Japan.
Arzani admitted last year players leave the A-League too early and Nabbout gave his advice to the teenager.
“I hope for his sake he makes good decisions for his future,” Nabbout told FourFourTwo in Sochi.
“I’m not sure what his intentions are, but it’s important for a young player like him to make the right decisions from now and I’m sure he’s got good backing behind him.
“At his age, he’s got to be playing games, he’s got to go somewhere where he’s going to improve as a footballer.
“He’s already very good and a lot of people know at 19 you can improve a lot more and you’re still very coachable.
“He can be moulded and has a lot to learn, but he’s very exciting and positive. I wish him all the best and I hope I can share the journey with him.”
Nabbout also praised Arzani’s contribution to the Socceroos in Russia and was excited for his future in the green and gold.
“He’s a very exciting player, he had a couple of chances against Peru,” he said.
“He’s just that kind of player that you can’t take your eye off for a second because he’ll get away and put one in the top corner or on someone’s head in the box.
“It’s good to have someone like that at 19 years old, pushing all the older boys, because you know he’ll be a rising star in the Socceroos and that’s not the last you’ll see of him.”
