Kaizer Chiefs transfers: Wish list revealed?

Kaizer Chiefs are targeting transfers in three key areas. Are these the personnel they’re targeting this winter?

KAIZER CHIEFS TRANSFERS WISHLIST REVEALED?

Chiefs want a striker, left-back and goalkeeper. That’s according to Lorenz Kohler of iDiskiTimes. As we already know, the club have pulled off a deal to sign Bongani Sam from Orlando Pirates. That presumably means they won’t go back in for Fawaaz Basadien, who Stellenbosch insist isn’t for sale. That leaves a striker and a goalkeeper. Chiefs have been linked with a variety of goal-getters including Lebo Mothiba, Iqraam Rayners, Khanyisa Mayo and the expensive Elias Mokwana. However, recent reports indicate that Nabi has narrowed his striker search to two names; Fiston Mayele and Tumisang Orebonye. 28-year-old Orebonye is an attractive option because he’s worked with the new manager before at FAR Rabat and has 40 caps for the Botswana National team alongside Thatayaone Ditlhokwe. He’ll also cost absolutely nothing as he joined FAR on a six-month loan deal.

INTERNAL GOALKEEPING SOLUTION?

Meanwhile, 21-year-old goalkeeping prospect Bontle Molefe is with the squad in Turkey after finally getting over his injury issues relating to wrist surgery. Is he the man to challenge Bvuma for a spot? In other words, is Molefe an internal solution that saves them cash? Club legend Itumeleng Khune is almost certainly heading for the exit after stellar service.

WHY NABI CHOSE KAIZER CHIEFS

“Indeed, I am close to signing with Kaizer Chiefs for a project to gradually restore the club among the top teams, especially since it is one of the oldest clubs in South Africa,” Nabi said to Tunisian outlet Al Sabeh news in Arabic, which was later translated, via SoccerLaduma.

Nasreddine Nabi will assume the head coaching role at one of the continent’s biggest footballing institutions. Austin Ditlhobolo from Goal has reported why the Tunisian tactician chose Chiefs over other lucrative or appealing options.

“I chose the Kaizer Chiefs offer because it is an honour for me to supervise a team of Kaizer’s value. At the same time, as a Tunisian and an Arab, I have this responsibility and this opportunity, I can learn about a different culture, football and socially, which is a gain I always aspire to, without giving myself too much value.” Nabi told Ditlhobololo.
