Luther Singh is set to be heading into a transfer war. With Kaizer Chiefs and Al Ahly vying for his signature. In a highly competitive transfer race, Chiefs and Ahly are aggressively pursuing former Copenhagen forward Singh. According to Soccer Laduma, Singh’s next move is creating quite the buzz.

Kaizer Chiefs Leading the Chase for Luther Singh

Luther Singh’s camp is leaning towards Kaizer Chiefs, with the club actively engaging with his representatives. A source close to the negotiations revealed. “Kaizer Chiefs are currently in the lead to sign Singh. They’ve initiated contact with his camp, and while nothing is finalised yet, the prospects look promising.”

The source emphasised that Chiefs are eager to strengthen their attack for the upcoming season. “They need a new striker and believe Singh can be a valuable asset. Singh himself is motivated to return to Bafana Bafana, and playing for Chiefs could enhance his chances.”

Al Ahly provides stiff competition

Despite Kaizer Chiefs’ strong position, Egyptian giants Al Ahly are also in contention for Singh’s signature. A second insider pointed out the challenge ahead. “Chiefs are currently the frontrunners, but Al Ahly poses a significant challenge. Nevertheless, Singh and his representatives prioritise Chiefs, giving them an edge. We should have a clearer picture in the coming days or weeks.”

Singh’s Bafana Bafana ambitions and Chiefs transfer plans

Singh’s decision will likely impact his aspirations to rejoin the Bafana team. His move is further complicated by previous interest from other clubs, making his final destination uncertain. Kaizer Chiefs’ pursuit of Singh underlines their ambition to enhance their squad’s firepower.

Signing Singh would not only bolster their attacking options but also demonstrate their intent to compete at the highest levels both domestically and continentally. In addition to Singh, Chiefs have shown interest in Percy Tau. The club is narrowing down their targets to determine the most feasible acquisitions.

Chiefs injury woes ahead of key match

Meanwhile, ahead of their final home game against Polokwane City this weekend. Kaizer Chiefs face significant injury challenges. Coach Cavin Johnson provided an update on the squad’s condition. “Tebogo Potsane, Keagan Dolly, Solly(Solomons), and Reeve Frosler are all out. We might have a few more absentees as well.”

The team will also miss the suspended Edmilson Dove, Brandon Petersen, and Pule Mmodi. Petersen and Dove are serving suspensions from red cards received in a draw against TS Galaxy, while Mmodi is out due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

As Chiefs prepare for their penultimate match of the season at FNB Stadium, they aim to secure a Top Eight spot. Despite the injury setbacks, the team remains focused on ending the season strongly against Rise and Shine.
