New Sydney FC signing Reza Ghoochannejhad says his versatility and ability to deliver goals can help them win a record-equalling fourth A-League title.

The Dutch-born forward arrived in Sydney earlier this week on a loan from Cypriot side APOEL in a boost to manager Steve Corica's attacking options ahead of the run-in to the finals and start of the Sky Blues' Asian Champions League campaign.

The 31-year-old, who scored 16 goals in 44 games for Iran before retiring from international football in 2018, is in line to face Melbourne City on Sunday.

With 11 games left in the regular A-League season, Sydney are third on the ladder - five points behind leaders Perth Glory.

"I cant wait to start, I'm here to win the A-League and we're trying to do the best we can and get the best results in Asian Champions League," he said.

"Both are important to us and I'm glad I can be a part of it and hope to help the team as much as I can.

"I'm going to play my heart out on the pitch and give everything for this club."

Ghoochannejhad will be a useful addition to Corica's squad, given his versatility across the frontline.

And the forward is relishing the opportunity to link with the A-League's joint top-scorer Adam Le Fondre.

"I have played in several position throughout my career," he said.

"Personally, my best position is a No 9 - as a single striker. I can play on the wings or behind the striker, there are many options but that's up to the coaches to decide.

"One of my strongest points is my combination, I like to link up, I like to get involved and I have a pretty good sense for scoring goals.

"I'm looking forward to work together with all my teammates. It's great that Adam has had a great season so far and I hope we can get better and better."
