Former Lille and Bafana Bafana striker has been spotted at the Kaizer Chiefs village in Naturena on Friday afternoon.

According to FarPost, Kaizer Chiefs might soon seal one of the biggest deals as the June transfer window is set to be opened.

Chiefs had a disappointing 2023/24 DStv Premiership campaign, ending the season in 10th place.

The club aims to bounce back in the upcoming season, with a new coach taking charge at Naturena.

The Soweto giants are reportedly looking to reinforce in various positions that include the strikeforce and left-back.

Colombian striker Jasond Gonzalez is set to be released at the end of the month when his contract expires. Sifiso Hlanti is also said to be on his way out when his contract expires later this month.

The visit by the overseas-based Bafana Bafana striker has piqued curiosity and raised questions.

FARPost can confirm Lebo Mothiba was at the village earlier on Friday. The 28-year-old is a free agent following the end of his contract with Ligue 1 side Racing Strasbourg.

Mothiba, who missed the 2023 AFCON due to injury, spent six years at the French side.

As he embarks on his search for a new club, speculation is mounting that he may have engaged in discussions with the Chiefs’ leadership about a potential move.

Mothiba is currently nursing a knee injury that ruled him out of the AFCON in January.

The former Diambars Academy forward recently said he was expecting to return to full fitness in “three or four weeks”.

The former Lille forward’s current priorities are regaining full fitness and securing a new club for the upcoming season, with hopes of returning to international football during the September FIFA international break.

Before his injury, Mothiba started five matches and also made 10 substitute appearances.

He registered three goals. According to Transfermarkt, he scored 26 goals and provided seven assists in 118 outings in Ligue1. In 29 Ligue2 games, Mothiba scored 10 goals and provided two assists.
