The January transfer window market will open in exactly 2 months and 10 days', but speculation sorrounding the future of a Kaizer Chiefs player is gathering pace.
You would be forgiven for thinking that Chiefs midfield maestro Njabulo Blom has his future already elsewhere bar at Chiefs due to the heightened level of interest in his services.
Blom was a maverick in a Chiefs team that was consistently inconsistent last season, and his spectacular performances have seemingly not gone unnoticed, as the Citizen has exclusively reported that he has been the subject of a mouth-watering R20-million link to a Spanish top division side, Mallorca RCD.
"The Citizen has caught wind of talks between a Spanish club (Mallorca) and the Glamour Boys regarding a potential move of midfielder Njabulo Blom," the report said.
Blom is an incredibly gifted youngster, who possesses one of the rarest abilities in football players - versatility. The Naturena produced star's dexterity enables him to operate in a myriad of positions with equal authority.
He interchangeably operated as both a right back and as a defensive linchpin, in a double pivot under the stewardship of former coach Gavin Hunt. Nevertheless, the incumbent, Stuart Baxter has preferably deployed him in the right back position, which he has really made it his own.
Despite those enumerable qualities, Mallorca have reportedly warned that they will not be forced to pay over the odds for Blom, as they are supremely confident he is not worth the R20-Million Chiefs have slapped on his head.
There is already a sense in which Mallorca, who are placed 13th in La liga standings could potentially raid the Glamour Boys in January, provided they meet the club's valuation of the 21-years old.

In the meanwhile, Chiefs are also likely to face another monumental challenge in retaining the services of new signing Njabulo Ngcobo. The defender-cum midfielder is also reportedly a subject of a massive bid by an unidentified European club.
'Road Block' as he is affectionately known, has had a slow start to his career at the Naturena-based club. He arrived during the July-August transfer window under a huge fanfare, and his integration into the team has been gradual.
However, his performances while on International duty with Bafana Bafana seemed to have garnered interest for his services. It is unclear how much the reported potential suitor would be willing to put on the table.
You could say, the January transfer is likely going to be hectic for Chiefs fans, but as we have grown accustomed to their financial prudence, Chiefs are no pushovers when it comes their players, they will likely squueze every little cent for their highly-prized assets.
