Kaizer Chiefs are assessing Malian defender Mahamadou Traore as they look to continue reinforcing their squad for the new season. 

Traore is a 22-year-old left-footed centre-back who recently left Moroccan outfit CR Al Hoceima.

Should the burly centre-back impress the Amakhosi technical team, he would join the club on a free transfer as he's not attached to any team. 

The former Djoliba AC represented Mali at senior national team level during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and 2014 Chan tournament in South Africa

Chiefs have already signed Philani Zulu and Teenage Hadebe, while they are also assessing Zimbabwean midfielder Tanaka Chinyahara.
