PSV strengthened itself on Sunday with striker Eran Zahavi. The 33-year-old Israeli comes transfer-free from Guangzhou R&F, the club of trainer Giovanni van Bronckhorst, and signs for two years in Eindhoven.
“Eran is a real goal getter with a great track record and adds experience to our young selection “, says technical manager John de Jong at the site from PSV.
Zahavi is a 54-time international of Israel (20 goals) and has played in China for the past four seasons, where he has had excellent statistics with 103 goals in 117 games.
Earlier, Zahavi made an impression in his homeland on behalf of Maccabi Tel Aviv, where he scored 122 hits in 157 games. At Hapoel Tel Aviv, he scored 33 goals in 127 games. In total, the counter for Zahavi, who also played shortly for Palermo and was less successful there, stands at 260 goals in 427 duels.
“I had a great time in China, but I want to show what I can do in Europe one more time,” said Zahavi. “PSV is a great opportunity for me. Playing for the prizes and attacking football. There is a great challenge here and I am looking forward to playing in the Netherlands.”
After goalkeeper Yvon Mvogo and left back Philipp Max, Zahavi is the third newcomer to PSV’s selection, which won 2-1 against FC Emmen on Sunday and is still without a loss of points after two Eredivisie rounds of play.
