In-Form Pirates Closing In On Congolese International Striker?

In-form Orlando Pirates could be closing in on a Congolese international striker, according to reports, before the local transfer window deadline at the end of the month. 

With the team oozing with confidence after their 2-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday and 5-0 on aggregate to knock their arch-rivals out of the MTN8, reports in the Democratic Republic of the Congo are linking AS Vita striker Jean-Marc Mundele Makusu with the Buccaneers.

“Congolese international Jean-Marc Mundele Makusu is loaned with option to buy to the South African team of Orlando Pirates for the 2020-2021 sports season. The star striker of AS V. Club from Kinshasa is already near Johannesburg where he will wear the colours of 'The Buccaneers' of Orlando Pirates,” Ouragan FM reports.

Mundele, who has returned from a long period of injury, will try to win in this formation, which will play in the 2020-2021 African Confederation Cup. He who is still Vita Club's top scorer in African competitions with more than 60 goals scored, is looking to revive himself in a new championship. The former black dolphin striker wants to bring his experience to the blacks and whites of Soweto,” the DRC publication states. 

Bucs still have a foreign space in their squad after registering Terrence Dzvukamanja, Richard Ofori, Deon Hotto and Austin Muwowo, while Gabadinho Mhango has been registered as a local.
