UCL? Bafana Striker Set To Stay Despite Interest

Talented young Bafana Bafana striker, Lebo Mothiba, looks set to stay at Lille OSC for now at least, despite interest from UEFA Champions League contenders, CSKA Moscow. 
 
 
The 22-year-old forward has played a vital role for Lille so far this season as they made an impressive start to their Ligue 1 campaign, scoring on the opening day as they beat Stade Rennais 3-1. 
 
Mothiba, who LOSC went to great pains to recall from a loan from Valenciennes in 2017/18, is already a fan favourite at the club having scored a brace last season to keep them in the top-flight, has started attracting interest from elsewhere, with the Siya crew being informed that CSKA actually made an offer for him. 
 
Ultimately though, the Russian side opted to sign Abel Hernandez – a free agent, a move which is thought to have ended their pursuit of Mothiba for the time being. 
 
Now, with just a few days left of the transfer window, Mothiba looks set to stay with his current club, a prospect that he is completely happy with.
 
Speaking to the media this week, the Bafana international said, "I'm at Lille, I'm focused on training, I work here and I give everything to the club. I do not think about the rest. We, the players, do not talk about transfers. We are just focused on our work, we listen to the coach and give everything in the field.”
 
Reports in France suggest that it could take between €7m and €10m for Lille to even consider letting their top striker leave the club.
