The Buccaneers and Matsatsantsa are believed to be looking to beef up their squads ahead of the second round of the 2016/17 campaign

Orlando Pirates are reportedly hoping to complete the signing of SuperSport United forward Dove Wome before the current Transfer Window closes on Tuesday.

The former Togo international has battled for regular game time at Matsatsantsa this season - having made only seven PSL appearances for the team.

The PSL log leaders are now said to be looking to offload the 25-year-old forward, who could not make Togo's 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Squad.

Negotiations between SuperSport and Pirates are reportedly ongoing and the attacker is most likely to join the Soweto giants on a short-term loan deal.

The Buccaneers, who have struggled in the league this season, are believed to be keen to strengthen their squad again during the current Transfer Window.

Chippa United left-back Marc Van Heerden and centre back James Okwuosa have been signed by Pirates as they look to push for the league title.

Wome is also believed to be on the radar of PSL strugglers Highlanders Park, but Bucs are said to be leading the race for his signature..

Meanwhile, SuperSport are also reported to be looking to complete the signing of former South Africa international Mandla Masango.

The 28-year-old winger has fallen out of favour at his Danish side Randers FC and the club are now said to be open to offloading him on-loan to Matsatsantsa.

Masango, who joined Randers from Kaizer Chiefs prior to the 2015/16 season, trained with SuperSport during the Danish off-season towards the end of 2016.
