Ilya Yavruyan became Ran Ben-Shimon's first signing as Maccabi Tel Aviv coach on Monday. The Armenian striker, who scored 10 goals in 26 matches at Bnei Sakhnin last season, will move to Maccabi for approximately $500,000. Yavruyan first came to Israel in 2005 to play for Hapoel Petah Tikva and moved to Maccabi's arch-rival Hapoel Tel Aviv the following season. The 26-year-old scored Hapoel's winner in the State Cup final in 2006. Maor Buzaglo, who played with Yavruyan at Bnei Sakhnin last season, is expected join him at Maccabi in the coming days in what is likely to be one of the more significant transfers in Israeli soccer this summer.
