Kaizer Chiefs are thought to be moving swiftly and might have tabled a good offer to the youngster’s team in Blantyre.
Soccer Laduma have indicated that Amakhosi could have tabled an offer to Big Bullets FC for the services of winger Lanjesi Nkhoma.
It is not known if the offer is official or not.
Chiefs had noticed him at the COSAFA Cup tournament in Durban, where Chiefs are believed to have been impressed with the player.
The source added that Chiefs have offered MK225 million (R4.3 million) to the Malawi Super League defending champions.
“It’s a lot of money. It is about 255 million Kwacha (R4.3 million),” said the Siya source.
“I am not sure how much it could be in South African rands but the offer is now in. I am not sure when it started or when they sent it through but today (Tuesday) Bullets officials were talking about it.
“It’s actually tempting for the club though they still want to have the youngster in the team,” the source said.
Another source added that according to information at Chiefs, the Malawian could be a long term replacement for Khama Billiat who has not returned to the club after his contract expired recently.
“If you watched him at the COSAFA Cup in Durban you can agree that he is a very good player,” said the other Siya source.
“He can easily replace Khama (Billiat). He is actually better than Khama in how he was at that age. He is 21-years-old and has a great future ahead of him.
“I think that’s why Chiefs don’t want to waste time to land him,” the source told the Siya crew.
When called for comment, Bullets CEO Suzgo Nyirenda stated that he hasn’t seen the offer yet.
“I have never seen any offer from any club so, no, we do not have any offer,” he told the Siya crew.
Soccer Laduma contacted Chiefs to comment on this transfer story, but they have not responded at the time of preparing the article.
