“We’re incredibly pleased to welcome Daniel to Melbourne Victory and believe he has all the attributes to be a strong contributor to our success this season,” Popovic said.

“We’ve seen what he can produce. He’s a dynamic, young forward who has shown he can deliver and we believe the environment at Melbourne Victory will allow him to return to his best.”

Arzani was also thrilled to be heading to Victory.

“I’m excited to be joining Melbourne Victory for the upcoming season and looking forward to getting stuck into pre-season with the team,” Arzani said.

“I understand the expectation that comes from joining a Club like Melbourne Victory and I want to prove myself to the best fans in the league, week-in, week-out.”

“AAMI Park is a special place for me and I believe that I can be the best version of myself at Melbourne Victory.”

Arzani is the first new signing of the 2023/24 A-League Men’s season, joining the promotion of Franco Lino, Joshua Inserra and Jordi Valadon to the senior squad. Arzani will join the squad for the commencement of the A-League Men’s pre-season on Monday 10 July.
