Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates offered 23-goal Ghanaian striker.
Are we looking at a potential Kaizer Chiefs vs Orlando Pirates race again? Well, it happens every season if a player is good enough or at least his hype. Remember Siphelele Mthembu ?

So what are the facts? Sarpong is a 26-year-old striker, who last played his football for AS Kigali in Rwanda. It was where he scored 23 goals in 25 games in 2019, but his stats in the past two seasons are unfortunately unavailable.
Anyways, he has been seen moving in the City of Gold.
“News reaching the Siya crew is that a Ghanaian striker has been spotted in Gauteng, with a proposed move to Soweto on the cards,” Soccer Laduma’s Nkululeko Dladla reported .
“As previously reported by the crew, forward, Michael Sarpong, was offered to AmaZulu, who are understood to have backtracked on their interest in the player.
“Indications are that the 26-year-old looks has been offered to the three Soweto sides; Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Swallows.
“Siya sources have revealed Sarpong is keen on a move to the DStv Premiership, with the player’s camp working hard behind the scenes to secure a move to one of the Soweto giants,” the report added.
