In the quest to reinforce their squad, Kaizer Chiefs have set their sights on acquiring a new goalkeeper, with Stanley Nwabili emerging as their primary target.
Despite their eagerness to secure the Super Eagles stopper, the club faces considerable challenges in making the signing a reality.
Chiefs’ Determination to Secure Nwabili:
Kaizer Chiefs have identified Stanley Nwabili as their marquee goalkeeper target. The club appears willing to go to great lengths to bring the Chippa United goalkeeper on board.
Nwabili, who boasts three clean sheets in four AFCON appearances, suffered an injury during Nigeria’s 2-0 victory over Cameroon in the Round of 16.
However, the 27-year-old is eager to recover in time for the quarter-final clash against Angola on February 2nd.
To accommodate the acquisition of Nwabili, Chiefs are contemplating releasing two goalkeepers from their current roster.
This strategic move aims to create space for the coveted goalkeeper, ensuring they have a robust squad moving forward.
Among the goalkeepers possibly facing departure are Itumeleng Khune and Bontle Molefe.
Khune’s contract, set to conclude in June, has garnered interest from Sekhukhune United, while Molefe has expressed a desire for more playing time away from Chiefs.
Nwabili’s Rising Stature:
Stanley Nwabili’s standout performances in the Ivory Coast during AFCON have garnered widespread admiration.
His stellar displays have made him a sought-after talent globally, intensifying the competition for his signature.
Kaizer Chiefs, aware of the challenges, must navigate a challenging path to secure Nwabili’s services, including managing their squad dynamics to accommodate the Nigerian star.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
