Munas Dabbur was the first official signing for this season. It was announced in January and saw Dabbur continue to compete in Austria until joining the team this summer. After a lot of imagining what this new experience would be like, the Israeli is now enjoying it: "The sensations are very good and I'm very comfortable with the group. It's another level and I hope to be able to give my best here in Sevilla". The attacker confirmed to Club media that his predictions have been confirmed: "Honestly I haven't been surprised. I knew that I was coming to a big club and I knew the level of the players. The group is good and I'm not surprised, but I'm very happy to be able to share a changing room with these players".
Lopetegui is testing him in new positions, and has even played Dabbur at left-wing: "It's not a position I've played before, but as a striker I have to adapt and I'm happy because I think it went quite well. In this system I see that I can also play there". In addition, he is clear that here he can continue his progression: "I think I come at the best time after two good seasons in Austria, but I think I still have not shown my best and to do so I have to work more and continue to improve. The Swiss and Austrian leagues are different, a different level with all due respect. It's not easy and it's true that I was the top scorer. I'm not thinking about becoming top scorer in LaLiga, but about focusing, working hard for the team and scoring goals, but first I want to adapt".
The language is a handicap at the moment, but he is clear that he will overcome it soon: "I get along well with everyone, although it's true that I'm trying to adapt to the language and that's why I get along better with Ben Yedder and Munir, who also speak Arabic, or De Jong and Wöber who speak English. I'm also integrating well with the rest". He also defined himself as an out-and-out attacker: "I don't like to talk about myself, but if I have to define myself as a striker, I'd say I can play alone or as a second striker, an attacker who is always looking for the shot and who also likes to create chances for teammates".
