Chiefs Set To Offload Strikers For The New Additions?

Chiefs Set To Offload Strikers For The New Additions?

Kaizer Chiefs football club is one Premier Soccer League club that could do with new additions in their attack as the current season didn't play out well for the club's attackers as none of the strikers reached double figures.

In fact, the club's strikers failed to even impress by scoring two goals each with Samir Nurkovic on one goal, David Leonardo Castro with nothing to the scoresheet and Lazarous Kambole on one goal.

Only Khama Billiat scored a total of 8 goals for the club this season equal to the club's most outstanding player for the season Keagan Dolly. The club scored a total of 32 goals in 29 matches which is shameful for a club of Kaizer Chiefs reputation.

Their lack of goals for the current season sees them now hoping for a CAF qualification as one match is left to play, hoping to run down Royal AM and Cape Town City FC. Kaizer Chiefs scored 21 goals less than the DStv Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns in the league this season, and its not what Kaizer Chiefs stands for as they are known for harbouring top scoring strikers over the years.

Samir Nurkovic scored only one goal this season, and was close to his second goal was wasn't given in the same match he scored his first goal. Nurkovic's maiden season with Kaizer Chiefs was a success as he scored double figures which was impressive, but goals dried up for the striker at the club since last season.

Kao Chiefs will be busy with reshuffling their squad to bring in younger talent to drop the club's age average, and with Samir Nurkovic, David Leonardo Castro and Lazarous Kambole not performing to expectations, they are likely to be offloaded by the club to free accommodation for the new additions.

Kaizer Chiefs has been linked with interest in many talented players such as Victor Letsoalo and Ashley Du Preez, but only the July transfer window will reveal who will be replacements for the players that's been linked with an exit.

David Leonardo Castro is one of the clubs longest-serving forward out of the three above-mentioned players linked with an exit, and its likely that the club will end ties with him as he failed to score a single goal in 12 league matches played.

Lazarous Kambole on the other hand scored one goal in just a few matches that he got to feature in this season, but since he scored only one goal since he joined the club a couple of seasons ago, the club might opt to let him go, but there is reported interest in him by his former club Zesco United according to reports.

Samir Nurkovic has also been linked with interest from other clubs in the PSL, Royal AM for one, and should get easily back on his feet should he leave which is also likely.

Kaizer Chiefs supporters will be thrilled by who the club will sign as replacements as they've been waiting in anticipation for a long time for new strikers, as the club failed in the last transfer window to bring in a new addition striker.

Kaizer Chiefs will have to spend the cash and attract only the best as they can't afford to replace strikers with new strikers that will deliver the same results as the one's that's been transfer listed.
