With the FIFA transfer ban now less than five months from lapsing, Kaizer Chiefs will be looking to heavily reinforce their squad for the 2021/22 DStv Premiership campaign.

Amakhosi have had a torrid season across all competitions during the current term, and though they still have the PSL title and CAF Champions League to contest for, they will most probably be hoping to finish inside the top eight bracket once the 2020/21 league curtain comes down.

Head coach Gavin Hunt has already made it known that he has already started working on transfer plans for next season, with a squad overhaul most likely to happen before next season commences.

Below, we take a look at players Chiefs could lure to Naturena in order to have a formidable squad that can compete toe-to-toe with the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates. 

10. Taariq Fielies - Cape Town City midfielder (28)

The hard-tackling Citizens defender has attracted huge interest of late, which prompted his employers to slap a whopping R8 million price tag on his head.

Hunt is said to be a huge admirer of Fielies, who could be a long-term replacement for defensive duo Eric Mathoho and Daniel Cardoso, who seem to be slowing down as age catches up with them.

9. Bradley Grobler - SuperSport United striker (33)

Perhaps the best box-to-box striker in the PSL at this current moment, Grobler needs no introduction.

The 33-year-old Bafana Bafana striker has already banged in 12 goals in the league this season, and is leading the goalscoring charts, and recently became Matsatsantsa's all-time top goalscorer.

He was strongly linked with Orlando Pirates in the past but the move never materialized, and a move to Naturena could be just what he needs for a last big pay cheque as he nears the end of his playing days.

8. Knox Mutizwa - Golden Arrows striker (27)

The Zimbabwean-born striker has been a consistent performer season-in-and-out for Abafana Bes'thende, and his eye for goal has made him one of the most dangerous goal-poachers in the PSL.

One of his strongest attributes is sticking around the box, and if he's not scoring, he's a provider for his teammates, and this could also be an opportunity for him to test his abilities at a much bigger club.

 7. Sera Motebang - Bloemfontein Celtic FC striker (25)

Even since scoring twice in their shock 3-1 win over Chiefs last season, the 25-year-old Lesotho international has set tongues wagging about the bright future that lies ahead of him.

Motebang is a player who works his socks off and fights for every ball in the 18-yard area, which is exactly what Hunt wants from his players.

6. Goodman Mosele - Baroka FC midfielder (21)

Mosele has been one of the rising stars in South African football of late, and his nomination and eventually walking away with the Young Player of the Season award during the 2020/21, came as no surprise.

The 21-year-old box-to-box workhorse has already caught the attention of several foreign and local clubs, and this could be just the opportunity for the youngster to finally test himself at the highest level.

5. Siyethemba Sithebe - AmaZulu FC midfielder (28)

Sithebe boasts an impressive attacking flair and skill, and has simultaneously not been shy to express his admiration to playing for one of the biggest football institutions on the continent.

Hunt loves hard working players, and Sithebe is one such player.

4. Brandon Petersen - Unattached goalkeeper (26)

Petersen is currently undergoing rehabilitation at Chiefs after sustaining an injury while at Wits, with the hope of signing a contract once he fully recovers.

Having worked under the tutelage of Hunt at the Clever Boys, the young goal-minder has already been eyed as a long-term replacement for the ageing Itumeleng Khune and Daniel Akpeyi.

3. Phathutshedzo Nange - Stellenbosch FC midfielder (29)

Nange is another player who spent time training with Chiefs before being snapped up by Stellies.

The former Black Leopards man could also be keen to once again work with Hunt.


2. Sifiso Hlanti - Swallows FC left-back (30)

Having already worked with Hunt during their time at the now defunct Bidvest Wits, winning a few trophies together, as well as spending time training at Chiefs this season before signing for the Dube Birds, Hlanti could once again be reunited with his former mentor come next season.

1. Thabo Nodada - Cape Town City midfielder (25)

The Citizens stand-in captain has been on Chiefs' radar for quite some time now, with club chairman John Comitis admitting that they had turned down Chiefs last season for the talented attacking midfielder's services.

Nodada, 25, has been branded by many to be a player who could fit like a glove if he makes the big move to Naturena.
