Peter Raskopoulos has told Socceroos.com.au that Tom Rogic should leave Celtic for Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

According to The Glasgow Evening Times, Arsenal are interested in signing the midfielder this summer and watched him in action for Australia against England on Friday evening.

Former Australia international midfielder Raskopoulos believes that Rogic should leave the Bhoys for the Gunners if he gets the chance.

Raskopoulos has also compared the former Central Coast Mariners attacking midfielder to Australian greats Harry Kewell and Mark Viduka.

“I adore watching Tommy Rogic,” Raskopoulos told Socceroos.com.au. “He’s something special and I hope he’s overcome his injuries and I hope that he does move to Arsenal as the rumours suggest.

“I think the more European league in the EPL will suit him better than the bustle and roughness of the Scottish league.

“The Scottish league is a hard league and Tommy will be suited to Arsenal much better. It’s a club where we’ll see Tommy making a huge name for himself.

“He just looks a different class right now. He looks like when Viduka and Kewell were in their prime. He’s a half a pass above anyone on the park right now.”

Rogic is one of the best players on the books of Celtic at the moment, and his performances suggest that he is good enough to play in the Premier League.

The problem with joining Arsenal is that the Australia international will have to work very hard for a place in the starting lineup.

The Gunners have some very good midfielders, and Rogic will not be guaranteed a place in the team even if he plays well. However, playing for a club as big as Arsenal could be too tempting for the 23-year-old.
