 Kaizer Chiefs are set to unveil Six Maruee signing.

Kaizer Chiefs target SIX marquee attackers.

Kaizer Chiefs want to bolster their work in the final third. That means investment in strikers and wide players who provide a threat.

NABI WANTS A HOST OF BAFANA BAFANA STARS AT KAIZER CHIEFS

According to the rumour mill on X, Bafana Bafana duo Oswin Appollis and Elias Mokwana are players Nasreddine Nabi would love to collaborate with at Naturena. Meanwhile, a surprise name has also emerged in the shape of Golden Arrows striker Lungelo Nguse. The 25-year-old bagged a respectable six goals from 24 league appearances last term.

BOTSWANA STRIKER ALSO ON THE RADAR

Nasreddine Nabi has zeroed in on Tumisang Orebonye as his first potential signing as head coach at Naturena. The 28-year-old striker plays under Nabi at FAR Rabat and has 40 caps for the Botswana National team alongside Amakhosi centre-back Thatayaone Ditlhokwe. The prolific hitman has four goals and an assist from 15 league appearances in 2023-2024. That’s a healthy ratio of direct goal contributions. Orebonye only joined the club in January though, on a long contract, so Chiefs would need to shell out a hefty transfer fee. The 1.80m striker, who has featured in this season’s CAF Champions League, is valued at €450k (R8.7 million) by transfermarkt.

BAFANA BAFANA STARS MOTHIBA AND RAYNERS ALSO LINKED

The ever-impressive Stellenbosch star Iqraam Rayners bagged 15 goals in the league last term and is now a reliable regular for the national team. Meanwhile, Lebo Mothiba Lebo Mothiba is no longer a Strasbourg player after his six-year stint with the Alsace club came to an end. Soccer-Laduma believes negotiations between Mothiba’s representatives and Kaizer Chiefs are moving along nicely; the player was even spotted at Naturena. Mothiba has 14 caps for South Africa and four goals, but his last appearance in national colours was in October 2023.

MARQUEE NAMES IN SUMMARY

It’s abundantly clear that Amakhosi need to strengthen up top and in wide areas. These six names cover all of those bases and more. Appollis and Mokwana can hold the width, Rayners can run the channels while Mothiba, Orebonye and Nguse are attractive options through the middle.
