Premier League

Orlando Pirates are now stepping up talks to sign Royal AM top class striker?

This season Orlando Pirates are not as far better off as they were last season with the only difference being that at this point last year they were in the MTN8 final

And eventually of course they ended up winning the competition but they did not use winning the competition as momentum to try and compete for the league title alongside Mamelodi Sundowns

Which unfortunately for Orlando Pirates, Mamelodi Sundowns ended up eventually winning the league with the Bucs not even putting up a fight as the Brazilians just simply ran away with it without any kind of challenge from anyone

This season is proving to be a similar case as last season for Mamelodi Sundowns as they are looking increasingly likely to run away with the title once again as after nine league matches played they are still yet to lose a game

As for Orlando Pirates it is not easy to predict where they will finish as they are too inconsistent to do so and have had a whole host of problems in different departments at the club

The first problem is the fact that Orlando Pirates have not appointed an extremely experienced first team head coach after Josef Zinnbauer resigned out of blue in August this year

Another problem is that Orlando Pirates have been facing a very strange injury crisis a very unusual one where almost half of the team have been camping in the treatment room

The biggest problem for the Bucs has been the issue of scoring goals as Zakhele Lepasa has been out injured, while Tshegofatso Mabasa is not prolific, and Gabadinho Mhango has been facing problems off the pitch

That has called for the suggestion that Orlando Pirates have to sign a striker in the january transfer window if they want to have any hope of having a good season

And the number one target for Orlando Pirates has been Victor Letsoalo of Royal AM who has also been followed closely by Kaizer Chiefs in recent months as well

But in that particular race according to & courtesy of reports from SoccerLaduma it would appear that as of now Orlando Pirates have the upper hand in relation to signing Victor Letsoalo from Royal AM

For Kaizer Chiefs missing out on Victor Letsoalo would be devastating as they themselves are also in desparate need for a top striker during the january transfer window
