Chiefs are believed to be looking at their options in the striking department ahead of the 2020/21 season but will only be able to sign new players in July 2021 if their two-window transfer ban is upheld.

Nevertheless, Bobby Motaung would be best advised not to bring back former fan favourite Musona as there are capable strikers right on his doorstep, according to Jabulani Mendu.

"The question we should ask ourselves is, in the team they loaned Musona to, how many goals did he score, how many games did he play?" Mendu asks KickOff.com.

Anderlecht striker Musona has scored three goals in 13 appearances across two loan spells with Lokeren and Eupen since January 2019.

"Because I still believe Kaizer Chiefs have strikers that are capable of scoring goals," Mendu continues.

"You know there's a boy playing in their MDC, I forgot his name. There's a boy they loaned to Swallows, I forgot his name as well.

"Before we break any bank [for Musona] I think we should look domestically first. I think there are capable players. Why can't they look at [Bongi] Ntuli? Because he has matured. I think he showed everyone that he can score goals.

"There's [Kermit] Erasmus at Cape Town City. I think there's players that are better than Musona... yes he came, he conquered, he left... he came back, he did what?

"Let's not just get excited... you know the [Collins] Mbesuma issue? Mbesuma came back, what did we say? Everybody wanted to sign Mbesuma, then what? Let's see what we have in the country. [Ndumiso] Mabena at Celtic is scoring goals."

Musona, who is a confirmed target for Mamelodi Sundowns, is available again after Anderlecht made it clear the 29-year-old will not be retained for the 2020/21 campaign.

"Rather go and get Ntuli than go and break the bank for Musona who's going to take another six months to... I'm against them going for Musona," Mendu insists.

"I don't know the boy and I have nothing against the boy, but I think there's capable goalscorers in the country... and not forgetting [Thamsanqa] Gabuza by the way.

"There's a [Mwape] Musonda of Black Leopards, he is not happy there. They mustn't panic, they must just sit down, think with sober minds, make a good decision."
