It is now becoming an almost impossible task for Orlando Pirates to keep one of their superstars as more overseas interest pours in.

Orlando Pirates players keep attracting interest from Europe and yet another one of their stars is being tracked!

In fact, it is not the first time that Pirates’ Relebohile Mofokeng has been the subject of interest from abroad.

Earlier in the season, Pirates announced that Mofokeng had travelled to English Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers for assessments. He then made his way back to South Africa, with word that he left a good impression in the English Midlands. This was the first formal bit of overseas interest in a player who was also thought to have impressed Spanish LaLiga sides. There is still no word yet, however, on whether the tricky winger will go back to England for another assessment or to sign a deal. 

Overseas interest mounting for Mofokeng

He has seen his game continue to grow in leaps and bounds, after solidifying his place in the Pirates line-up. That has since seen him inline for a return to the U.K. This time with Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers thought to be interested in Mofokeng. 

Mofokeng has not just attracted advances from Rangers, however, with Glasgow Times reporting on further interest. It’s believed that African giants Al Ahly and Serbian giants Red Bulls Salzburg are tracking the Pirates teenager.

That does not seem to be all, however. Now reports coming from Soccer-Laduma suggest more from Europe and the MLS in Mofokeng. Can Pirates keep him?

Azerbaijan and MLS clubs to tempt Pirates?

“Well-placed Siya Sources have indicated ‘top ranking’ clubs from Azerbaijan and MLS have been sniffing around the Vaal-born star (Mofokeng). This with a view of making a move for him at the end of the current season. The Siya crew understands that neither of the clubs have made an official approach to the Buccaneers (Pirates), but have put out feelers as to whether he would be available or not.” Wrote the publication. 

If he is to leave Pirates next season, Mofokeng will hope to do so having won the Nedbank Cup final. They will take on league champions Mamelodi Sundowns on the 1st of June in Mbombela.
