As the transfer window deadline looms on September 22nd, Kaizer Chiefs are intensifying their efforts to secure a prominent attacker for the upcoming season. The club is eager to bolster its offensive capabilities, following a lackluster start to the season with only 2 wins and 2 draws, trailing log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns significantly.
Having endured an eight-year trophy drought, Kaizer Chiefs are under mounting pressure to clinch silverware this season. They have already made impactful signings, strengthening their squad with notable defensive additions like Given Msimango and Thatoyane Dithlokwe, as well as in-form attacker Pule Mmodi, who has netted 3 league goals.
However, the club is not resting on its laurels and is covertly pursuing three additional signings before the transfer window closes this Friday. Sources suggest that among these prospective signings is the Mamelodi Sundowns superstar Gaston Sirino, who has submitted a transfer request amid limited playing time under the new coach, Rhulani Mokoena.
The rivalry between Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns adds intrigue to the situation, especially as the teams are set to clash in the MTN8 Semi-Finals second leg on Saturday, with Sundowns holding an away goal advantage. The potential inclusion of Sirino in the Kaizer Chiefs lineup could significantly impact the match and further intensify the rivalry.
With the clock ticking down to Friday, the football community eagerly awaits developments. Gaston Sirino, currently out of the country, is expected to return to South Africa soon to address his future with the club. Stay tuned for updates as the transfer window deadline approaches.
