Marco RojasNEW ZEALAND footballer Marco Rojas is apparently on the radar of European giants Liverpool and Juventus.

The Kiwi of Chilean heritage left the Wellington Phoenix in 2011 for the Melbourne Victory, and has enjoyed a stellar season after a shaky first year in Australia.

Under Ange Postecoglou he has have scored 10 goals and set up a further six in 16 starts, and reports out of Melbourne say scouts from English side Liverpool and Italian side Juventus will be at AAMI Park on Saturday to watch Rojas when Melbourne play Sydney FC.

The Herald Sun newspaper said both clubs have had the winger on their radar recently, and could make an offer in the January transfer window.

Rojas has previously said that he wanted to finish the season with Melbourne, although that was before the reports linking him to major European clubs emerged.

He told the Al-League’s official website: “I’m aware of it. I’m speaking to the people I need to speak [with] to go through that process and when I’m ready I’ll make a decision about my future,” he told the website.

“I don’t know what’s happening at the moment I’m still processing that with the people close to me and we’ll come to a decision when I think I’ve made the right one and we’ll go from there.”

Rojas is held in high regard in Australia, some calling him the “Kiwi Messi”.
