Another candidate is Aden Kartsev from Maccabi Netanya, but the amount demanded by Eyal Segal for him is expected to make such a deal difficult.
At the same time, Netanya is interested in several players from Haifa, led by Ofri Arad and Maor Levy, and Haifa may take advantage of this for a possible deal.
If Haifa fails to add a player, another option would be to bring back Bassem Zarora, who is on loan to Hapoel Afula from the National League and shows good ability.
