Chiefs targeting in-demand striker


Kaizer Chiefs' documented search for a new attacker has been narrowed to one of three PSL striker targets, including a Chippa United hit-man.

Chiefs are desperate for a new top man with Leonardo Castro and Lazarous Kambole on their way out while Samir Nurkovic is sitting on the fence after the club failed to meet the March 31 deadline to activate the option on his contract.

AmaKhosi have been stretching their hands since the beginning of the year in their search and word reaching this website is that they are keen on Chippa United striker Bienvenu Eva Nga.

Eva Nga is out of contract at the end of June and will join Chiefs on a free if an agreement is reached on his package.

Chiefs have already opened talks with the Cameroonian with terms already agreed though they still need to sign the actual contract.

An urgent matter relating to one of the club's staffers in the last couple of days has delayed the finalisation of the deal. 

The 29-year-old has done his talking with goals and 10 to his name in 23 appearances scoring even against Chiefs like he did last term and the season before when he was at Bidvest Wits.

Three goals in six appearances against AmaKhosi plus the double figures that he has reached this season have all convinced the club from Naturena to settle for the former Mozambique league top scorer.

However, of note is the fact that Chiefs haven't enjoyed any success with footballers from Cameroon in the PSL era years stretching back to 1996.

The only forward from the land of the Indomitable Lions to ever wear the colours of Amakhosi was Halidou Malam who was signed as a replacement for Pollen Ndlanya.

He was at Chiefs during the 1999/2000 season coming in having been to the 1995 Under-20 FIFA World Cup and having had stints with clubs in Saudi Arabia and Indonesia but having been turned down by Perugia after five months of training with the Italian Serie A club.

Malam started five games and never scored and up to this day ranks as the worst striker that the club ever signed based on his football abilities.
