Mamelodi Sundowns

Top Goalscorer Added To Sundowns' Long Shopping List?

Mamelodi Sundowns are showing interest in yet another attacking player who has recently had a hefty price tag put on his services.

Highlands Park’s co-director Larry Brookstone has been quoted in media reports, saying that according to him, Peter Shalulile is worth R30 million.

While this price tag could be regarded as steep for the current South African market, especially following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Siya sources have indicated that the Brazilians nonetheless identified the Namibian international as a potential new addition to their setup for next season and have since begun talks behind the scenes.

Sundowns are also trying to land the services of Shalulile’s countryman, Deon Hotto, although the Brazilians are set to battle it out with Orlando Pirates who are also keen on the player.

However, while the Chloorkop-based club have already tabled an offer for Hotto, talks for Shalulile are yet to progress to that stage.

The striker joined Highlands from Tura Magic FC in Namibia back in July 2015, where he has since established himself as one of the most prolific goalscorers in South Africa’s top-flight.

This season, Shalulile has scored 15 goals in all competitions so far in the 2019/20 campaig. With 12 of which are league goals, placing him in strong contention for the Absa Premiership Golden Boot Award this season.

Though Sundowns are known to not be shy to spend big on quality additions to their squad, R30 million valuation could be seen as just a starting point in their negotiations and should it progress further and Highlands Park agree to the sale of the player, the fee for his services can be expected to be on either side of the R10 million figure.
