Pirates leading the pack in the pursuit of Chiefs striker-of-choice?
With only three games in eight days, the Orlando Pirates are in for a challenging stretch. They will face RS Berkane in the final of the CAF Confederations Cup and face Maritzburg United and Royal AM in the league.
Despite having three games scheduled in eight days, the team is said to be working hard to improve their roster for next season. A striker from Kaizer Chiefs has been mentioned as a possible target for the club when the July transfer window opens after the season ends.
Chiefs are said to be interested in signing Orlando Pirates defender Chibuike Ohizu. According to rumors, Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates, and AmaZulu FC are interested in Sekhukhune United's Chibuike Ohizu.
Samir Nurkovic has been linked with a move away from Kaizer Chiefs, and the team is in desperate need of a new striker. AmaZulu FC, which finished second last season and then fired striker Benni McCarthy, is likewise in need of a forward, as they have been unable to do so this season.
When it came to Orlando Pirates' offense, Kwame Peprah rediscovered his scoring touch in December of last year, and defender Bandile Shandu chipped in with many important goals.
Despite the fact that Pirates do not have the same pressing need for a striker as Kaizer Chiefs and AmaZulu FC, it is widely believed that they are the frontrunners in the battle to sign Chibuike Ohizu. The Pirates are reportedly working hard to sign him.
It was the first time in the PSL that the Ivorian striker has scored more than 10 goals in a season. There is also speculation that Chibuike Ohizu may be open to moving to a larger team.
