If you require your DOF to look for players to buy then obviously Judging Player Potential and Ability is a requirement. If he is to do negotiations with transfers fees/contracts then consider the attributes of Motivating and Determination. Also, Adaptability no doubt will play a key part for when he looks for targets abroad as well as adapting to his new country if he is not from the nation your managing in.
