Chiefs ‘Unlikely’’ To Pay R15m For 21-Goal Striker

Despite serious interest from Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates amongst other clubs, the Siya crew has learnt that Amakhosi are unlikely to pursue the services of a R15.9 million striker, Franck Etouga.

Several news reports about Chiefs’ interest in the 21-year-old Cameroon striker have been doing the rounds both locally and in Ghana.

According to these reports, Chiefs, Pirates and a host of European teams including Olympique Marseille, St Ettiene and Atletico Madrid are all keeping tabs on the forward who finished the 2021/22 season as the Ghanaian Premier League’s Top Goal Scorer with 21 goals for Asante Kotoko.

With the calibre of European teams chasing Etouga, his chances of making a move to either Naturena or Parktown at this point is quite slim.

However, the Siya crew have been informed that Chiefs are unlikely to pursue their interest due to fact that Kotoko have slapped a $1 million (±R15.9 million) price tag on the player, an amount that Chiefs are unlikely to pursue.

As reported by the Siya crew, Amakhosi are understood to have forked out around R10 million to sign Ashley Du Preez from Stellenbosch and a further R3 million for his former teammate Zitha Kwinika and according to well-placed Siya sources, are unlikely to spend a similar amount on just one player.

Meanwhile, the crew have also reported that Chiefs have made a breakthrough in their pursuit of Sekhukhune United captain Yusuf Maart.

16 players have been linked with Chiefs, some of whom have already been signed…
