KickOff.com understands that Golden Arrows have their eye on Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni, but they are not the only ones.
Arrows assistant coach Mandla Ncikazi has confirmed the club are looking for a keeper after Maximilian Mbaeva recently broke his nose, but would not say the name of their target.
Kaizer Chiefs, who are without first-choice shot-stopper Itumeleng Khune for the rest of the season through injury, have also lately been linked with their former player Ngobeni.
"We are still looking for a new keeper, the process is still ongoing," Ncikazi said.
"What makes it difficult, the candidate is there, unfortunately we are competing with a team with a huge budget."
Ngobeni is way down the pecking order at Chloorkop amid competition for game-time with Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mweene and Reyaad Pieterse.
Nxikazi added that Abafana Bes'thende are also looking to add a striker to the roster in the January transfer window.
"It's a wish for us to get a new striker. We have a number of names and there's competition from other teams. We are confident."
The Durban-based outfit, in 10th spot on the topflight log, will next face Tjakstad JS in the Nedbank Cup last-32 at Kanyamazane Stadium on Saturday.
