Orlando Pirates may travel to Nigeria to analyze one or two players in their search for quality players to add to their assault for the 2022/23 season.
With strikers Gabadinho Mhango and Tshegofatso Mabasa reportedly facing uncertain futures with the Buccaneers, the club is looking to add strikers to the roster for next season.
Following their CAF Confederation Cup final success in Nigeria last Friday, Bucs appear eager to maintain their positive relationship with the country by providing opportunities to one or two more Nigerian players, like they did earlier this season when they recruited Olisa Ndah from Akwa United.
According to insiders, outstanding youths Daniel Dioh and Jesse Francis may be among the players targeted by the Soweto giants, though a decision on which players will be contacted for prospective recruitment is expected at the end of the season.
The two players were in Mzansi in January and trained with Mamelodi Sundowns, but the Chloorkop club couldn’t sign them since the club’s foreign quota had already been depleted.
While the Brazilians are anxious to have the duo back for additional evaluation after they impressed during their initial trial, sources indicate that the Bucs may also aim to have them on assessment as part of their plans for next season.
