Gor Mahia will have to move quickly and fill in the void left by departing lead striker Jacques Tuyisenge.
The Rwandan hitman, who has so far managed seven goals in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL), is set to sign for Angolan side Petro Atletico after they tabled an offer on Friday.
As exclusively revealed by Goal, the Kenyan champions are discussing the huge offer from Petro Atletico and are willing to let go Tuyisenge, whose contract with the club was to end in December 2019.
“Petro Atletico has offered $150000 for Tuyisenge and Gor Mahia are set to get 20% when they finally sell him. His contract ends in December and he is expected not to renew the contract," Gor Mahia official Judith Nyangi told Goal.
“The two clubs have agreed on contractual terms defining the transfer of Tuyisenge and the only thing Gor Mahia is awaiting on now is the money agreed to be wired into their accounts.”
Tuyisenge leaves having won the Kenyan Premier League title thrice since joining from Police FC in 2016. He reportedly joined Gor Mahia in a deal worth Sh 4 million three years ago after netting 13 goals for Police FC of Rwanda.
Recently, Tanzanian giants Yanga SC, Simba SC, a DR Congo side and AS Vita were among the clubs linked with the Rwandan captain.
