Chiefs’ New Season Preparations In Full Swing, Closing In On Striker?

Kaizer Chiefs appear to be advancing their preparations for next season and working around the clock to revitalise the squad after yet another disappointing season with no silverware. 

Following the club’s sporting director Kaizer Motaung Jnr’s announcement about reducing the average age of the squad, an overhaul of players could be expected in Naturena as the club will be attempting to improve results in the new season with the aim of returning to winning trophies, having last won a major trophy in 2015.

Furthermore, with Amakhosi having some of the players in their current squad facing uncertain futures; notably, strikers Leonardo Castro and Samir Nurkovic among others, news reaching the Siya crew is that the Soweto giants could be nearing announcing Cameroonian forward Bienvenu Eva Nga who has been scoring goals for Chippa United as one of the new signings for the new season.  

According to well-placed sources, Chiefs might have already signed the 29-year-old on a pre-contract, following discussions with the Chilli Boys which are said to have been successful.   

Eva Nga has netted 10 goals and provided one assist from 22 appearances in the league for the Gqeberha-based side.  

The 29-year-old has been with the club since 2020, having joined from Bidvest Wits where he had a stint under Gavin Hunt.

Meanwhile, Castro, 32, and Nurkovic, 29, will have their contracts expiring at the end of the season and indications are that Chiefs haven’t yet communicated their plans about the two players, while indications are that the club could be planning for the future without them. 

Both players have struggled with injuries which have affected their progress in recent months though Nurkovic managed to score his first goal for the season in Chiefs’ 3-1 victory over Chippa last weekend in the same match where Eva Nga also scored.

It was the Serbian player’s first goal since June last year, while Castro is yet to open his account for the season as he has struggled to shake off the hamstring injury that has been troubling him.

As reported in edition 1268 of Soccer Laduma, Chiefs could also sign young Cape Town Spurs defender Rushwin Dortley whom the club is currently in talks for with the Mother City outfit.

As part of the preparations for the new season, Chiefs have already also signed Siyethemba Sithebe from AmaZulu on a pre-contract.
