KickOff.com can confirm that Kaizer Chiefs’ transfer business in this window is not yet sealed despite the number of signings that they have already announced.

Top of the list of those that have come is midfielder Yusuf Maart who has joined from Sekhukhune United on a six-figure salary.

The trio of Kamohelo Mahlatsi, Lehlogonolo Matlou and Dillan Solomons has signed from Swallows FC, Zitha Kwinika and Ashley du Preez come in from Stellenbosch with Siyethemba Sithebe joining from AmaZulu.

Chiefs have also rewarded youth graduate Mduduzi Shabalala with a first-team contract.

After releasing Castro, Nurkovic, Kambole and Parker who have all played upfront through their time at Naturena has left the club thin in attacking areas.

KickOff can confirm that the Soweto giants are intensely pursuing three attacking options with one possible deal being finalised before the end of this week.

Two of the attackers – whose names are known to this website – have never featured in the DStv Premiership and are names that have not been linked to the club.

One is non-African. with the other possibly arriving as a free agent while a transfer fee will have to be paid for the other.

A number nine is a priority signing for Amakhosi at this stage, considering that the club have not possessed a striker reaching double numbers in the league for the past two years.

Nurkovic was the last to surpass that mark of getting into double figures in his first season.

Chiefs have already been linked with Cameroonian forward Franck Mbella Etouga along with Victor Letsoalo of Royal AM.

Attempts were also made to sign Bienvenu Eva Nga but pulled out after Arthur Zwane raised concerns that the Cameroonian would not suit the system to be used at Chiefs.
