Replacing Kermit Erasmus is going to be a big challenge for the Citizens who will be hoping Prince Agyemang and Charles Zulu step up to the plate

Cape Town City have announced two new signings in Ghanaian striker Prince Opoku Agyemang and Zambian international wide player Charles Zulu.

The Citizens, who were beaten in the MTN8 quarter-finals by Orlando Pirates last weekend, have been fairly low-key in the transfer window up until now.

Before this week, their only confirmed acquisitions were Bombay Reid from Steenberg United, Sanele Gaxa (AmaZulu FC), Terrence Mashego (TS Galaxy) and Aubrey Ngoma, who returned to the club from Mamelodi Sundowns.

They have also allowed Siphelele Mthembu to join the AmaZulu revolution, while the Cape side's headline business being the sale of Kermit Erasmus to Sundowns.

Erasmus was really hitting his full stride down in the Mother City last season and his loss could be keenly felt.

Unless some of the new men can step up.

That includes Zulu, who arrives with high expectations from Zambian giants Zanaco.

“Cape Town City is delighted to announce the acquisition of Zambian international winger Charles Zulu. City and Zanaco have reached a transfer agreement, which sees Zulu sign a 4-year deal till June 2024!” The club announced on their Twitter account.

Agyemang arrives from Ghana Premier League side Medeama SC and has been handed the coveted number 9 jersey.

According to ghanasoccernet, he scored 11 goals and added three assists in 14 matches last term.

"Cape Town City is delighted to announce the acquisition of Ghanaian international striker Prince Opoku Agyemang. City and Medeama SC have reached a transfer agreement for an initial 1-year deal with the option to extend to June 2024," read another post on City's social media page.

The Cape side have also promoted forward Taahir Goedeman to the first team.

The Citizens ended last season in good form with five wins in seven outings in the bio-bubble after the lockdown to end in sixth position.
