Chiefs Transfer Update: Reason Why Chiefs Set To Cut Ties With Attacking Trio, For New Signings.

Update on the Chiefs' transfer situation, including the rationale for the Chiefs' decision to sever their ties with the attacking trio

Why the Chiefs are planning to cut their ties with the attacking trio.

After a lackluster performance in the attacking department throughout the current campaign, the Kaizer Chiefs are likely going to part ways with three notable first-team strikers in order to make room for new signings.

Leonardo Castro, Samir Nurkovic, and Lazarous Kambole will be replaced as a result of the Chiefs' decision to reshuffle their roster. The three players contributed two goals to the Chiefs' cause.

Despite having already participated in 13 games so far this season, Castro, who has the longest tenure of the three, does not yet have a goal to his name.

Following his struggles with injuries, AmaKhosi has given him playing time in each of the team's previous seven games.

With only one game left to play, the Colombian now faces the possibility of finishing his first season in South Africa with Mamelodi Sundowns since he arrived via Mamelodi Sundowns seven years ago. There is only one game left to play.

His contract will expire at the end of the month following the one in which it is written, and he is one of a select group of players at Chiefs who are paid more than R5 million annually.

Fellow striking partner Nurkovic is in no better waters.

This season, he has struggled with injuries and has only managed to score once in 15 games played.

The Serbian's contract, which had been improved at the start of the previous campaign, is set to expire at the end of June, and he is currently in the process of moving on to Royal AM.

This season, Kambole has only made five appearances, but even more concerning for him is the fact that he has only scored twice for Chiefs in his entire career with the team.

Kambole has played a total of 1900 minutes of football, which indicates that he has scored a goal once every 950 minutes on average.

The Zambian will return home having made a significant amount more money than he was receiving in his home country, but without being able to adequately defend the legitimacy of his earnings.

This season, he has spent the time between being placed on the transfer list and the expiration of his three-year contract at the end of June.

The three players have only managed to score two goals despite having played a combined total of about 1700 minutes of playing time.
