Daniel Arzani might not be a household name just yet, however, after several appearances in the 2017/2018 season, it’s clear that this kid has some extreme talent.
This is a season where Melbourne City has lost marque striker Tim Cahil due to him wanting more game time, in order to better prepare for the Socceroos appearance at the 2018 Russian World Cup.
In addition, their other star in attack in Bruno Fonaroli hasn’t played a game for Melbourne this A-League season and that’s left Ross McCormak on his own up front.
McCormak has had a spectacular season, however, he has needed a foil in front of gold. Now it seems as if Melbourne have found that foil in Daniel Arzani.
This kid is only 19 years old and has only played nine A-League matches, however, from what he has shown us so far; Arzani has more than enough pace and skills to play a big part of his team finals campaign.
For Arzani’s first few appearances, the midfielder played a minimal amount of time on the pitch. Although, it seems as if Arzani has stamped his claim and has remained a solid contributor in his past six impressive matches.
Thus far Arzani has only managed to kick one goal but had ample opportunities to add to that tally on Saturday night against Sydney FC.

The visitors may have been on fire at AAMI Park, but Arzani showed enough of his zippy abilities to prove that he has a bright future indeed.
Arzani showed an incredible amount of pace, class by foot and was almost impossible to stop with the ball.
It may have not been Melbourne’s night, however, you wouldn’t have ever guessed that had you purely watched Arzani’s performance.
