Bold Transfer Prediction: Heracles Almelo sign Brisbane Roar central midfielder Luke Brattan and Celtic central attacking midfielder Tom Rogic.
Why It Could Happen: Eredivisie clubs have extensively scouted Australian A-League players.
2014: PEC Zwolle signed Trent Sainsbury from Central Coast Mariners.
2013: AZ signed Eli Babalj from Melbourne Heart.
2010: Utrecht signed Tommy Oar, Adam Sarota and Michael Zullo from Brisbane Roar.
2009: AZ signed James Holland from Newcastle Jets.
2009: Twente signed Nikita Rukavytsya from Perth Glory.
2006: PSV Eindhoven signed Archie Thompson on loan from Melbourne Victory.
Brattan has yet to embark on an ambitious journey abroad despite being one of the classiest midfielders in Australia.
He controls the tempo of play and is an active ball winner.
His excellent goal against Wellington Phoenix indicates there is potential for him to expand his game.
"He's [Brattan's] very intelligent, he's intuitive, he can score goals, he can make goals, he can defend," Roar manager Mike Mulvey said, per Dejan Kalinic at Sportal.com. "His biggest challenge is challenging himself in his mind as to how far he wants to take his ability."
With regards to Rogic, he was on the outside looking in at Celtic hence the loan to Melbourne Victory.
He was lively in the 1-1 draw against Perth Glory, hitting the crossbar with a thunderous shot from 30 yards out and being a creative influence.
He is Australia's most technically gifted player: He has represented the Australian national team in both futsal and football.
He should be playing in Europe, so an attack-driven league like the Eredivisie should enhance Rogic's game.
Heracles, a team that are 11th in the Eredivisie, represents a logical steppingstone for Brattan and could help revitalise Rogic's career.
Their fellow Aussie, Jason Davidson, is an established starter at left-back for Heracles, so he can ease Brattan and Rogic into life in the Netherlands.
