Can Mooy Improve To Forge Premier League Career?

Aaron Mooy has become the lynchpin of the Australia midfield over the past two seasons due to the vast improvement in his standard of play. The 26-year-old enjoyed a dominant two-year spell in the A-League with Melbourne City, while he also impressed greatly for the Socceroos.

Due to the quality of his performances both on the domestic and international stages, Manchester City secured his signature on a three-year deal. Mooy had a previous spell in England with Bolton Wanderers where he rejected the chance to remain with the club, while he also struggled during his time in Scotland at St Mirren, making 30 appearances in two years before returning home.
