Kaizer Chiefs to finally get their target second time of asking?

Kaizer Chiefs have set their eyes on their target Mfundo Thikazi. Amakhosi tried to sign the attacker last season but got Potsane instead.

Kazier Chiefs are set to bring in Royal AM forward Mfundo Thikazi, who has been their target for over a year.

With the club looking to restructure their technical team, more players are expected to make their way to Naturena. Amakhosi have reportedly opened talks with Thikazi and could be their first signing ahead of the new campaign.

According to Soccer Laduma, Kaizer Chiefs have targeted the winger for some time.

“For now, it’s just interest. Yes. Chiefs have shown interest in the player and we will see when the team returns from the break for preseason training and camp to see what will happen.

“It’s not the first time that Chiefs have shown interest in Thikazi. Last season before they signed Tebogo Potsane they actually wanted him but Royal AM could not let him go. But at the moment it looks like they will let him go,” a source told Soccer Laduma

Although Thikazi is a target for Kaizer Chiefs, Royal AM are not willing to sell their star just yet. The KwaZulu-Natal club has struggled last season and might not want to offload their best and most experienced players.

“The one thing that could block or delay the move for Mfundo (Thikazi) to Kaizer Chiefs would be Royal AM not wanting to lose a player while they can’t sign new ones. “

So, they are trading carefully on this one and though Chiefs have made inquires, it will be a difficult decision for Royal AM to make right now as they don’t have enough experienced players going into the new season. They don’t want to find themselves in the same situation like last season fighting against relegation until the last day of the season,” said the source. 

With Nasreddine Nabi expected to join Kaizer Chiefs as head coach soon, Amakhosi need to ensure every target is signed before the start of next season.
