Kaizer Chiefs could make an enormous statement of intent before next season. Why? It is what big clubs like Amakhosi do when they’re not lifting trophies to the sky. So there is quality in the list of reported player targets.
A powerful club with massive financial resources will always attract the best talent available.
It is no different to Kaizer Chiefs, who are a sleeping giant in terms of trophies and also wounded by a two-year FIFA transfer ban.
Several leading outlets in the country have been keeping a close eye on the club’s attempt to conduct quiet business for next season, but the reports have been making it to the media. That’s just how it is.
Not every player always ends up at the club that is reportedly chasing them, but more often than not, the deals eventually materialise.
These are Kaizer Chiefs’ reported targets for next season:
- Rushwin Dortley, central defender, 19, Cape Town Spurs
- Ashley Du Preez, forward, 24, Stellenbosch FC
- Sipho Mbule, central midfielder, 24, SuperSport United
- Yusuf Maart, central midfielder, 26, Sekhukhune United
- Victor Letsaolo, striker, 29, Royal AM.
- Bongani Zungu, central midfielder, 29, Amiens (France)
- Ndabayithethwa Ndlondlo, central midfielder, 26, Marumo Gallants
- Kobamelo Kodisang, forward, 22, Braga (Portugal).
So how many of these players will eventually put pen to paper on a Kaizer Chiefs contract? We will find out before August!
