Kaizer Chiefs are set for a transfer window of major change, both on and off the field this offseason. 

While many wait with bated breath to see who Chiefs appoint as new coach, player transfers are also of interest.

If widespread reports are anything to go by, Chiefs are set to appoint Nasreddine Nabi as their new coach. By the looks of things, he may have to come in and hit the ground running in terms of decisions on the player front. While there are quite a few players that will see their contracts run out, he may have the final say. Keagan Dolly, Njabulo Ngcobo, Siyethemba Sithebe, Edmilson Dove, George Matlou, Sifiso Hlanti and Itumeleng Khune are in danger of leaving. 

Du Preez subject of interest

One player you would not expect to put in that category is forward Ashley du Preez. The Speedster joined Chiefs from Stellenbosch FC on a long-term deal. Amakhosi are believed to have paid R10 million to secure the player’s services ahead of the 2022/23 season. Last week, this publication reported there were clubs in Portugal willing to pay up to R20 million for his services

Now one of the clubs has since been revealed by Soccer-Laduma as topflight side Vitoria!

Vitoria willing to pay Chiefs R20 million?

“Portuguese club, Vitoria SC have shown interest in Ashley (Du Preez) and they apparently sent their scouts to watch a few games in South Africa where the player was in action. It is now up to Chiefs to give the player the chance to go for an assessment when the Portuguese team returns to their base for a pre-season camp but the interest is there,” said the source. 

With du Preez hardly being prolific in his two season at Chiefs, would the wise move be to cash in? That money could go a long way in boosting their transfer kitty and securing multiple targets.
