Tuks defender Keegan Allan has reportedly attracted interest from Italian clubs in addition to being on the wishlist of Orlando Pirates.
The Sundowns academy product, 21, played a key role in Tuks' promotion push, which was thwarted when Swallows won the relegation playoff.
ITALIAN CLUBS GO AFTER THE ORLANDO PIRATES
Allan is on the radar of the PSL's top clubs, but foreign interest may cause Orlando Pirates to miss out.
Masebe Qina of Soccer Laduma reports: "After emerging as one of the top performers in the University of Pretoria's failed promotion bid, former Mamelodi Sundowns development player Keegan Allan has piqued the interest of Pirates and a few other DStv Premiership clubs."
"However, the 21-year-old has been weighing his options in order to secure a move to Europe in his next contract, as confirmed by sources in the know."
"According to information reaching the Siya crew, the centre-back has piqued the interest of Serie A clubs Hellas Verona and Spezia Calcio for the 2022/23 season."
Mohammed Lawal, Allan's agent, confirmed that local and international clubs have expressed interest in him.
"We are aware of Keegan Allan's local and international interest." "We are working hard to see Keegan advance his career, whether locally or internationally," Lawal said.
The Orlando Pirates have been very active in the transfer market.
They confirmed the arrival of Bienvenu Eva Nga from Chippa United, Miguel Timm from Marumo Gallants, and Nkosinathi Sibisi and Tapelo Xoki from Golden Arrows and AmaZulu, respectively, over the weekend.
The Orlando Pirates have clearly not finished their recruiting drive, with an emphasis on finding promising young players who are ready for the first team.
