City’s January Transfer Plans Revealed

The Siya crew has learnt that high-flying Cape Town City are set to continue their search for an established striker in the January transfer window.

City lost their top striker Kermit Erasmus to Mamelodi Sundowns despite their best resolve to hold onto their star forward at the end of last season.

The club eventually gave in and sold the pint-sized hitman to the reigning PSL champions, who are said to have forked out a fee believed to be in the region of R12 million for the Bafana Bafana man.

With the club scoring 14 goals in eight games in the DStv Premiership, City boss John Comitis has confirmed that the striking position is an area of concern for the team and that they’re looking to strengthen the attack in the next transfer window.

“We are a bit concerned about our strike force and we are not sure what our next step will be. There is nothing we can do now until the 15th of January (in the transfer market), and we will review the position come the new year,” Comitis told the crew.

City brought in Ghanaian Prince Apoku Agyemang, who was seen as Erasmus’ replacement at the start of the campaign. However, five games in and the striker has managed just a solitary strike to his name as he adjusts to the local game.

Democratic Republic of Congo striker Kule Mbombo is one of the names that has emerged as a potential target for the Citizens, but Comitis has remained mum on the forward.

The 24-year-old, who plies his trade for Latvian outfit FC Riga, is said to have caught the eye of City’s hierarchy and they could move for the player when his contract expires in November 2021.

The forward has netted 13 goals in 26 appearances for Riga and has featured in the UEFA Europa League this season.
