Transfer Update: City Keen On Sundowns Striker
Cape Town City Are Keeping An Eye On A Mamelodi Sundowns Striker
Cape Town City are keeping a close eye on a Mamelodi Sundowns striker, with a view to adding the player to their books in the 2018/19 campaign.
Yannick Zakri is currently on the books of Ajax Cape Town until June, 30 this year, with sources recently revealing that the Urban Warriors were keen on having the player on their books on a permanent basis.
However, with Ajax still locked in ongoing court cases, it seems that the club may be at risk of losing some of their key players, with the Urban Warriors set to campaign in the National First Division next season.
In addition, it is unlikely that the likes of on-loan players such as Zakri and Siyanda Zwane will continue on the books of Ajax should they be plying their trade in the NFD next season.
It has since been revealed to the crew that City are looking at luring Zakri to their camp in the new season, although will need to approach Masandawana in the upcoming July/August transfer window, as the Ivorian is still contracted to the Brazilians for one more year.
City have already begun identifying positions in their squad that needs reinforcement, with the club keen to find a goalscoring striker.
Now, it remains to be seen whether Masandawana will welcome offers from City for Zakri in the transfer window.
