How Akumu Compares To Chiefs’ Most Expensive Players

Kaizer Chiefs confirmed the addition of Anthony Akumu to their squad yesterday and Soccer Laduma takes a look at how he compares to some of their most expensive players.

Akumu became Chiefs’ first signing of the January transfer window yesterday, filling in their fifth foreign quota spot which was previously held by James Kotei before he parted ways with the club this week.

However, while the club will be confident that Akumu will add the needed value to the team, the 27-year-old still has a long way to go before being ranked as one of their most valuable players.

According to the figures on, Akumu’s market value is currently at €100 thousand (±R1.6m), making him the player in the team with the lowest value.

Chiefs’ most expensive player currently, is Khama Billiat, who is marketed at €2 million (±R32m), with Itumeleng Khune following at €1.2 million (±R19.24m), Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Daniel Cardoso at €850 thousand (±R13.6m) and Daniel Akpeyi at €650 thousand (R10.42m).

Willard Katsande, who plays in the same position as Akumu, is also one of Chiefs most expensive players marketed at €650 thousand (R10.42m) and in comparison, Chiefs’ new midfielder has a long way to go before hitting these digits.

However, should Akumu hit the ground running for Amakhosi, the Kenyan’s market value will eventually start to increase, with indications that he could be valued more once the July/August transfer window arrives.
