Kaizer Chiefs to sign a centre-back and a striker

AmaKhosi confirms that not too many players will be bought during this transfer window, but the fans should at least expect a centre-back and a striker

Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has told the club website that their defence and strike force are the only departments that need serious reinforcement during this transfer window.

Motaung confirmed that AmaKhosi are in the market for a centre-back and a striker for the upcoming season, but he could not reveal any specific names.

“We will not be making too many changes to a team that won us a double. We are bringing a centre-back and a striker including players from our youth development who will be coming as back-up,” said Motaung.

Chiefs will be campaigning in the Caf Champions League next year and Motaung said that is the reason why they have to bolster their squad, especially with players like Morgan Gould and Tsepo Masilela often nursing injuries.

However, Motaung said AmaKhosi are not intending to bring big name players that will warm the bench.

“We don’t want to bring star players and for them to sit on the bench,” added Motaung.

Chiefs have reportedly made contact with SuperSport United for the services of striker Kermit Erasmus, and if Motaung is looking for a striker that is hungry for game time, then Erasmus could soon be unveiled as Chiefs’ biggest signing in the next few weeks.
