The 21-year-old winger or attacking midfielder is courted by a number of clubs, including Liverpool and his decision to leave the A-League will surely alert potential suitors.

Although Rojas is believed to have been in contact with teams from England and Germany, the New Zealand international is staying quiet about his future.

The A-League's Player of the Year paid tribute to Melbourne for his development, but is delighted to get the chance to play abroad.

"It's every footballer's dream to play in Europe and I'm over-the-moon to be able to say I'm about to live that dream very soon," Rojas told AAP.

Melbourne head coach Ange Postecoglou was disappointed at losing a player of Rojas' calibre, but hopes the starlet will become a success in Europe.

"While we would have loved to have seen him stay here at Melbourne Victory for a little longer, we knew we couldn't stand in the way of his European ambitions," he said.

"He's rightly attracted plenty of attention around the globe for his efforts this year."
