Chiefs looked far off the pace from rivals Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns, and fans are now expecting fireworks in the transfer window.

The Motaung’s are deep in their search for a new head coach however that’s not the only focus area right now.

According to the latest reports, the club’s management are also identifying new signings and one surprise target has been revealed!

The 29-year-old attacking midfielder currently plays for Zambian giants Zanaco. He previously featured for second division side TS Sporting in South Africa between 2020 and 2021.
