[edit] Background

A classic predatory poacher, Damari combines exceptional pace with a deft and composed touch around the six yard box to be one of the most dangerous strikers in the Israeli Premier League. The former Maccabi Petah Tikva youth product completed a €1.5 million move to Hapoel Tel Aviv in 2011 and rewarded the Red Demons by finishing as Israel's second leading scorer and leading them to a State Cup title.

Working best when paired with either a target man or a hard working deep lying forward, Damari's speed and quickness make him a handful darting into channels and working off of the back shoulder of defenders. Omer already starts with the ability to place his shots making him an even deadlier finisher than he already seems but teaching him to knock the ball past opponents and use his acceleration to outstrip them is crucial.

Damari starts the game with a £2.6 million release clause but could be available for even less than that and will likely ask for between £7.5k and £10k per week in wages making him a slightly steep purchase but entirely within the budget of of clubs such as Blackburn, Leicester, Monaco or PSV where he would immediately be a key player.
