CONFIRMED : Baxter Set To Welcome Striker Next Week

Kaizer Chiefs have been facing difficulties upfront when it comes to getting the goals, having to rely solely on Serbian Striker Samir Nurkovic who is their do or die Striker. 

Amakhosi rely on the 28 years old striker, but that has been not going well for them as he has not been in the right state of mind, considering that he was in the news throughout the whole transfer window. 

Chiefs were busy in the transfer market, signing quality players but failed to sign a reputable Striker, although they have another Striker in Leonardo Castro who would have been seen as back up to Nurkovic. 

As confirmed by coach Stuart Baxter, striker Leonardo Castro is currently home in his native Colombia being nursed back to full fitness – and that has robbed Amakhosi of having alternatives other than Samir Nurkovic and Khama Billiat.

Indications are that the forward will make his way to Naturena at the end of the month, which is a sign that by then he might at least be ready to start training with the rest of the squad and return to action as soon as possible.

This will be music to Stuart Baxter's ears and the Amakhosi fans as they desperately need another Striker to step up when Nurkovic fails to do so, with that said, he cannot do the whole job alone as it leads to him carrying the whole team in his shoulders. 

When it comes to the striking department at Amakhosi, they also have a striker in the form of Zambian forward Lazarus Kambole who is still placed in the transfer list at the club, falling out of favour at Naturena. 

Chiefs had reportedly planned to sign Victor Letsoalo when he was still with Bloemfontein Celtic who were sold to Royal AM, deciding to stay with the team, meaning that Chiefs lost out in their plans to bring in the goalscorer. 

Baxter will be hoping for the quick recovery when he returns to South Africa, so he could get busy immediately in getting the goals for the Glamour Boys. 

Chiefs next play at home this coming weekend, having a game against new boys Royal AM who will have Chiefs' target Letsoalo in their team. They will hope that they can get back to winning ways following their 2-0 loss at the hands of Mamelodi Sundowns this past weekend.
