The Buccaneers have been chasing the signature of Zambia national team striker Lazarous Kambole for some time, as previously reported by the Siya crew.

Following Bucs’ recent pre-season training camp in Zambia, from which Sredojevic’s side played against Kambole’s team Zesco United among other clubs, the Serbian coach has reportedly confirmed interest in the player.

“We know him very well from a long time ago, I am servant and soldier of African football for the past 18 years as I search, I follow Zambian football very much. I know him from his humble beginnings, I know he has reached where he has matured as a player and having that in mind, he’s a top player,” Sredojevic reportedly told reporters in Zambia.

“They can take anything away from Zambia but they cannot take away the talent. The talent that is blossoming in this country is incredible. I am really impressed with everything. So we are looking forward to (having) him (Kambole) if possible. We already have Shonga and Mulenga as pure representatives of Zambian football,” the coach reportedly said. 

While Zesco CEO, Richard Mulenga has not ruled out a potential move to the PSL for the forward, he and his club are evidently only keen on talking in December, with Bucs unlikely to land their target in this transfer window, as reported in edition 1082 of Soccer Laduma.
