KickOff.com has been informed that Italian forward Gustavo Paez and Malawian defender Miracle Gabeya have shown early promise at Kaizer Chiefs.
The pair are currently training at Naturena with the view to possibly landing contracts.
Paez is a forward who is available on a free following a spell with Venezuelan club Estudiantes de Merida while Gabeya has been doing duty for Big Bullets back home in Malawi.
Information gathered by KickOff.com is that Paez has ‘Alexis Sanchez’ qualities in his game as he is direct and fast.
Though having already played in Peru, Venezuela, Slovenia, Italy and Spain, he is still 26.
Paez was born in Venezuela to Italian parents and has been capped at junior international level for the South Americans.
He scored in a friendly match for Chiefs this week and has travelled with the squad for their mid-season camp in Potchefstroom.
With regards to Gabeya, the centre-back has been solid at training and his signing will be all dependent on what happens with Lorenzo Gordinho’s trial at Danish club Aalborg BK.
Though he is only 20, Gabeya is already a regular for The Flames.
The Chiefs technical team is also still running the rule over Brazilian defender Pedro Henrique Dias DeAmorim and Ismael Olivier Toure of Ivory Coast.
