Cerezo Osaka keen on Melbourne Victory's Nichols
Incoming Cerezo boss Ranko Popovic, formerly of FC Tokyo, has revealed that he is indeed keen on the 24-year old attacking midfielder and could make a move for him in the New Year.
"I make no secret that we are trying to attract Mitch to the club and he's a player I admire very highly," Popovic told SBS.
"For me the attraction of a player such as Mitch is his versatility - he can play as a number 6 or a number 10 and this flexibility is very important."
