R3.5 Million For Chiefs Target, Negotiations Ongoing?

Kaizer Chiefs might have to be prepared fork out around R3.5 million in order to land one of their targets in this transfer window.

Amakhosi are being linked with Baroka FC’s Talent Chawapiwa in this transfer window, with the midfielder having been identified as a potential replacement from Edmore Chirambadare, according to sources in the know.

Chiefs confirmed Chirambadare’s exit from Naturena last week, along those of Tsepo Masilela, Keagan Buchanan, Sibusiso Khumalo and William Twala. 

As reported in the latest edition of Soccer Laduma, issue 1078, Chawapiwa is seen as a potential replacement for his countryman Chirambadare at Chiefs, according to Siya sources.

However, Chawapiwa’s price tag could be a stumbling block in a potential deal.

Baroka, who are said to be open to selling Chawapiwa, are believed to be looking for around R3.5 million for the 26-year-old left winger.

The Zimbabwean, who recently helped his senior national team clinch the 2018 COSAFA Cup, is currently under contract at Baroka FC until June 2020.

While indications are that a deal for the player to Chiefs might have already been agreed to in principle, the two clubs are yet to agree to a transfer fee. 

“They (Chiefs) are still interested in Talent very much. You know what the problem is, and what is going on there (at Chiefs), there isn’t a coach there. We’ll see how it goes,” said the source. 

“You are aware by now that the club has parted ways with a few players. A top replacement for Chirambadare is needed. Both players (Chawapiwa and Chirambadare) play in the same position. It is Chiefs that we are talking about here – a club that can’t afford to just sign any other player, but only quality,” added the source.

With indications that Baroka want around R3.5 million for the player’s signature, it is believed that Chiefs could look to negotiate the asking price. 

“The price has been confirmed and it’s out there. R3.5 million is the amount Baroka is asking for. As for them getting it, I am not sure. That’s a lot of money. But this is football, and football is business, and you will never know,” concluded the source.
