His loan spell at Craven Cottage started with an injury lay off, but he still went on to have an impressive stint at Fulham.

The four goals Manor Solomon scored in the Premier League came in consecutive matches from February and March.

The Isreali was saddled with goal scoring responsibilities following an injury to Aleksander Mitrovic.

He joined Fulham on loan from Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk, after activating a FIFA rule which gave room for players based in Ukraine to suspend their contracts.

This rule that applied to players who aren’t Ukrainian was launched by FIFA after Russia invaded Ukraine. 

Based on the performances of Manor Solomon, he helped Fulham to a 10th-placed Premier League finish.

Marco Silva’s side were also keen on handing the Israel winger a permanent deal, after his loan spell ended.

The 23-year-old has made 35 appearances for the national team of Israel, scoring 7 goals and providing 9 assists since he made his debut in 2018.

Tottenham Hotspur supporters will be hoping that the Israeli massively complements Harry Kane in attack for Spurs next term.

Kane has been linked with a move away from the Lilywhites, as Bayern Munich are still in the transfer pursuit of the Englishman.

Ange Postecoglou is making needed reinforcements this summer as he wants to avoid a repeat of the dismal campaign Spurs had last season.

In Europe, his CV is ravishing, having led Celtic to many successes, including a domestic treble during his two-year stay at the club.
