Orlando Pirates reportedly close to signing Baroka and Bafana Bafana striker Evidence Makgopa

Orlando Pirates reportedly close to signing Baroka and Bafana Bafana striker Evidence Makgopa

Makgopa has had a promising career so far even though he hasn’t been scoring goals consistently for Baroka this season.

However, Soccer Laduma reports that Makgopa is on his way to Pirates where he will get the chance to compete with other international strikers.

As things stand, Pirates have the likes of Kwame Peprah, Gabadinho Mhango, Tshegofatso Mabasa, Terrence Dzvukamanja and Zakhele Lepasa as their strikers.

And a change of environment with healthy competition could be exactly what Makgopa’s career needs in order to shine again next season.

With Baroka in danger of being relegated to GladAfrica Championship, Makgopa could definitely be lost to them in the upcoming transfer window.

“Evidence Makgopa is preparing for a move to Orlando Pirates at the end of the season. Pirates are also ready to welcome him as one of the new players for next season. So, he won’t be affected by what happens at Baroka even if the team gets relegated,” a source told Soccer Laduma.
