The Brewers lost their striker to Zambian outfit Napsa Stars after a starring role last season, and Goal analyses who could replace him

    The striker is one of the best free agents still available after he was released by Wazito FC a couple of weeks ago. Last season, he struggled at the club largely owing to several changes among the coaching staff.

    He scored 13 goals for Sony Sugar in the 2018/19 season. AFC Leopards have not yet managed to sign an agreement with the player and the Brewers can capitalize on that and sign him.
  2. ​David Molinga

    The Young Africans striker fell out with the 27-time Tanzanian champions despite scoring 11 goals in the limited appearances for the Jangwani street-based side. He has not yet been signed by any team and Tusker can bring him on board.

    Having played in several leagues, the Congolese has what it takes to be successful in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL). Tusker need an established striker to lead them and Molinga can be the player they are looking for.
  3. Elvis Rupia
    Goal Kenya.

    Despite AFC Leopards stating the player has agreed to extend his stay by a year, he has not yet made it official by signing the papers. The 11-time champions can hijack the move and convince the player to sign for them.

    Having played for Nzoia Sugar, Wazito, and Ingwe, the towering attacker has what it takes to help Tusker win the elusive 12th title. With the likes of Boniface Muchiri and Luke Namanda, the player could thrive.
  4. ​Jacques Tuyisenge
    Goal Kenya.

    The Rwandan striker announced his exit from Girabola where he was plying his trade with Petro Atletico. He is currently available as a free agent with top clubs in East Africa targeting his services.

    With the financial stability at Tusker, Tuyisenge cannot refuse to play for them. In almost three seasons with Gor Mahia, the striker netted 50 goals. He is a winner and the Ruaraka-based side can benefit from his experience.
  5. Meddie Kagere
    Simba SC.

    Meddie Kagere

    Just like good wine, Kagere is becoming better with age and has managed to score 45 league goals for Simba in the last two seasons, emerging a top scorer in the division in the process.

    However, the Rwandan is frustrated by coach Sven Vandenbroeck who has continuously overlooked him in favour of John Bocco. Coach Robert Matano can take advantage and convince him to join his charges.
