The Premier League has already closed its transfer window and Europe's other big four divisions aren't far behind as clubs finalise their recruitment drive before the new season truly gets going.
Several members of the Caltex Socceroos' recent FIFA World Cup™ campaign have already made intriguing moves throughout Europe and in Asia.
Make sure you're across where our key internationals have headed with this update on the latest transfer activity.
AUSSIES ABROAD: EFL Cup wrap
AUSSIES ABROAD: Maclaren, Vukovic impress in Europe
ESTABLISHED STARS TAKE NEXT STEP
After just shy of 18 months in Japan, Milos Degenek returned to Europe with an exciting move from Yokohama F. Marinos to Red Star Belgrade.
The developing defender, who spent part of his childhood in Serbia, has settled in quickly and is now just one step away from the UEFA Champions League group stage.
He could be joined in the main draw by Trent Sainsbury, who last week swapped Jiangsu Suning for PSV Eindhoven.
Sainsbury wasn't short on options following a sterling tournament in Russia, but the chance to work under former Caltex Socceroos assistant Mark van Bommel made the Dutch champions an attractive destination.
Yet to debut for his new club, the classy centre-back could get his chance in the two-legged UEFA Champions League play-off clash with BATE Borisov.
Jamie Maclaren will be aiming to keep Hibernian in the frame for continental qualification after rejoining the club for whom he netted eight goals in the second half of last season.
Parent club Darmstadt allowed the striker to return on loan to Easter Road and he will now seek to cement his reputation as one of the deadliest goal threats in Scotland.
Matthew Jurman, meanwhile, has brought an end to a successful stint with Suwon Bluewings in order to join perennial Saudi contenders Al-Ittihad.
The change could provide handy insights into a new flavour of football ahead of AFC Asian Cup 2019.
He'll have a familiar face as a domestic rival with goalkeeper Brad Jones joining Al-Nassr from Feyenoord, where he spent the final two seasons of an almost 20-year career in Europe.
EMERGING ACES MAKE KEY CAREER CHANGES
Teenager wonder Daniel Arzani could add to the Caltex Socceroos brigade in Scotland if recent reports are to be believed.
The emerging 19-year-old has been linked with a loan spell at Brendan Rodgers' Celtic after securing a dream move to Manchester City.
Arzani's immense potential persuaded the Premier League champions to sign him from sister club Melbourne City as the winger embarks on a promising new chapter.
Another young Australian talent, Aleksandar Susnjar, is already attempting to use a loan as a launching pad to first-team minutes.
The 22-year-old centre-back has joined Slovak side MSK Zilina on a temporary basis from Mlada Boleslav, a move that could potentially propel him back into the senior national team setup.
FRESH STARTS FOR FRINGE HOPEFULS
At 33, Adam Federici still has plenty to offer and the former FIFA World Cup™ squad member will hope a transfer from Bournemouth to relegated Stoke City - where he is deputising for England goalkeeper Jack Butland - proves fruitful.
Flying left-back Brad Smith has also left the Cherries, linking up with Major League Soccer side Seattle Sounders on loan.
The 24-year-old ex-Liverpool player looked sharp in a debut win over FC Dallas.
Finally, back in Europe, James Jeggo's consistent performances for Sturm Graz earned him an off-season switch to Austria Wien, the country's most successful club.
