Despite being signed by Sundowns and then loaned out to the University of Pretoria for the previous season, Nigerian forward Etiosa Godspower Ighodaro has not yet made an appearance for the team.
Ighodaro (age 23) has displayed encouraging form at TUKS, piqueing Partizan Belgrade's attention.
Red Star Belgrade and the SuperLiga heavyweights make up the other half of Serbia's most prosperous clubs.
An offer of 500 000 Euros (about R8,5 million) will reportedly be made for the Nigerian who has been the subject of much discussion, according to renowned Serbian daily Mozzart Sport.
Seydouba Soumah, a former midfielder for Ajax Cape Town, joined the team a few years after Eric Djemba Djemba left Manchester United.
Ighodaro has already dazzled during Italian junior tournaments.
Etiosa is the younger brother of Super Eagles player Osaguona Ighodaro, who has two caps for his country. Etiosa attended Abuja College.
