It is believed that, this time around, it will be no different between the two Soweto giants. This, of course, will inevitably see them clash for certain targets. According to reports, they’re already clashing for Stanley Nwabali, Oswin Appollis, Elias Mokwana, Riaan Hanamub and Shaune Mogaila. That does not seem to be where the list ends, however, with a new name set to be part of the tug-of-war. 

Pirates and Chiefs battling in the market

In fact, just three weeks ago, this publication reported that Chiefs had joined Pirates in the race for Freddy Kouablan. Last month, both were thought to be in the race for Chippa United star Baraka Majagoro. TS Galaxy’s Thato Khiba has also since entered the list. That just proves that both clubs are looking to strengthen their forward lines ahead of next season. Now, the latest name to be discussed by both clubs suggests their defensive lines are also a targeted area for improvement. 

It now appears that the two Soweto Giants are ready to move on from Nwabali as a potential goalkeeper. According to Soccer-Laduma, Chiefs and Pirates are targeting Angolan international Neblu. 

Switch attention to Neblu?

“I can confirm to you that Neblu has triggered interest in the PSL. The player’s handlers are currently in talks with at least three teams at the moment. Yes, they star are Teboho big clubs in the league. Neblu is a top goalkeeper and at 30 years old he has reached maturity. He has been in the national team of Angola set up since 2012, either the A team or the CHAN side that he has captained for many times. His top performances at the recent AFCON in Cote d’Ivoire were proof of his remarkable progress although his impressive work was overshadowed by the red card he got against Namibia,” said the source. 

It remains to be seen if Chiefs or Pirates will eventually make an offer for Neblu, with both looking for a goalkeeper.
