ICYMI: Kaizer Chiefs should be all over this highly-rated PSL attacker

Three strikers for Kaizer Chiefs to sign

Khanyisa Mayo

With seven goals and two asissts to his name in 20 PSL appearances this term, 24-year-old Khanyisile Mayo is a quality player. He proved it again with his majestic brace against Gallants in a recent league encounter. One criticism one could level at the Cape Town City man is that he’s not able to string quality performances together, when he’s often brilliant one week then slightly anonymous the next, but that is not uncommon for players of his style. Perhaps a change of scenery is exactly what he needs?

Ashley Cupido

The Cape Town Spurs man has been prolific in the second tier of South African football this season. No wonder he’s being linked with Chiefs, Pirates and other top sides. The 21-year-old certainly has the physical profile to be a nuisance for defenders at the top level, and he’s also equally comfortably playing through the centre as he is coming off the right-hand-side.

Etiosa Godspower Ighodaro

Another intriguing option would be 24-year-old Beninese forward Etiosa Ighodoro, he’s scored eight PSL goals this term for an unfashionable Chippa side. Maybe worth a gamble?
