In 2014, Đerlek was invited into Serbian under-15 national team under coach Marko Mitrović.[19] He scored a goal in a debut match for the team against Montenegro on 9 December 2014.[20] He also scored against the Netherlands on 11 February 2015.[21] Đerlek continued playing with Serbian under-16 selection between 2015 and 2016, scoring in matches against Poland[22] and Macedonia,[23] and in a match against Montenegro on 10 June 2016, when he scored a hat trick.[24][25] He also scored on his debut match for Serbian under-17 level against Hungary on 8 December 2015.[26] He played performed as a captain until summer 2017, helping the team to qualify on the UEFA European Under-17 Championship in 2016[27] and 2017.[28] In December 2017, Perica Ognjenović called Đerlek in Serbian under-18 national team for the tournament in Israel.[29] He made his debut for the team as a captain in 1–0 defeat against home team on 11 December same year,[30] and also played against Germany next day.[31]

Playing style[edit]

"Đerlek is ambitious, impeccably disciplined, in the right sense of the word is a professional. There are almost everything that a modern football player needs. He can operate at the whole places in the middle of the court, being available to play as a central and defensive midfielder, as well as a playmaker. If it is played in rhombus, he can be used both left and high. If Armin is mentored, especially in a period in which he is, then he can expect a great career."

—Adem Preljević, founder of "AS" football academy, February 2018[1]

Standing at 5-foot-8-inches (1.73 m), Đerlek usually operates as an attacking midfielder.[32] He can use both legs equally well, which allows him to create a position for a shot from multiple angles. He is characterised as a creative playmaker with strong pace, likewise good ball control and game vision. He is also described as classic number 10 in 4-2-3-1 formation, with leadership and captaincy roles.[33][34][35] Due to his playing style, The Guardian compared him with Eden Hazard as also his compatriot Adem Ljajić.[36][37]
