City In Foreign Quota Headache To Sign Sundowns Striker?

Cape Town City could find themselves having to reshuffle their quota spots after being linked with two foreigners.

As reported in the past by the Siya crew, City are looking at bringing in another centre-back, as they look to strengthen their squad following the departures of both Robyn Johannes and Tshepo Gumede.

According to sources, the Mother City-based club have been looking on the African continent and have identified an Ivorian centre-back to add to their roster. However, the club has also been linked with Mamelodi Sundowns’ Yannick Zakri, who is also of Ivorian nationality.

The Mother City-based club recently parted ways with striker, Sibusiso Masina and are believed to be assessing the possibility of adding Zakri to their attacking department.

Apart from still having to put in an offer to Sundowns for Zakri’s services, as things stand, the club only has one foreign quota spot free, with Edmilson Dove, Roland Putsche, Allan Katerega and Masud Juma all occupying the other spaces.

Should City want to add a foreign centre-back, as well as Zakri to their books, they will have to reshuffle their squad in the coming weeks.

City are expected to make several new additions to their squad in the upcoming July/August transfer window and have already begun freeing up spaces on their wage-bill, parting ways with Gumede, Masina, Vincent Kobola and Robyn Johannes.

Now it remains to be seen whether they will free up another spot on their foreign quota, should they want to pursue Zakri’s signature.
