Former Arsenal chief scout Brian McDermott brought Rogic to the attention of Arsene Wenger twelve months ago and the north London club has tracked the player's progress since.

It has been a breakout season for Rogic with ten goals in 39 games this season for Celtic as the club took out the Scottish Premier League title.



Rogic is off contract at the end of next season and it is understood incoming Celtic coach Brendon Rogers is hopeful of retaining the services of the former Central Coast Mariners player long term.

Lead by Fiorentina, Valencia and Levante, Celtic will have plenty of suitors should they choose to cash in on the Australian in the case contract negotiations are unsuccessful.
