Mamelodi Sundowns are threatening to raid Platinum Stars for the services of Luvolwethu Mpeta and Tshepo Gumede in the January transfer window.
The pair are out of contract at the end of the season, with Gumede also being linked to Soweto giants Orlando Pirates.
And according to a source close to both men, Downs are poised to launch an official offer for the defenders.
"Sundowns are trying to do everything to sign both players and are set to officially present the offers in January," says the source.
Stars boss Ratanang Nke, however, expressed confidence that Mpeta and Gumede will commit to new deals in Rustenburg.
"We not aware of any interest and it will be unethical of teams to approach our players when they still have contract with the team," Nke tells KickOff.com.
"We have already engaged both players for new contracts and we are confident they will stay with the club next season," he adds.
