Kaizer Chiefs are said to be in the market for a striker in this January transfer window and yet another player has been mentioned. 

With Chiefs struggling to find he back of the net consistently so far this season, coach Arthur Zwane has realised he needs to act quick.

In a close season exodus, Chiefs released the likes forwards Samir Nurkovic, Bernard Parker as well as the misfiring Lazarous Kambole.

To their credit though, they sought to remedy that situation and enlisted the services of Ashley du Preez who signed for the Glamour Boys from Stellenbosch FC as well as Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana who joined much later in the transfer window as a free agent.

While Bimenyimana has been effective at Chiefs, scoring six goals since his arrivals, he has also proven to be injury prone.

The player picked up an injury that saw him miss the Soweto Derby, where Amakhosi created enough chances to stretch their winning margin to beyond one goal.

The culprit in front of goal on the day was du Preez, who failed to convert two guilt-edged opportunities which has been a lingering feature of his game since making the move to Naturena.

In the week leading to their MTN8 second leg semi-final loss, Chiefs coach Zwane did not hide the fact that they were still in the market for a striker.

Now according The South African, Amakhosi are currently assessing Hungarian striker Balint Bajner as well as monitoring the services of Montenegrin Boris Kopitovic.

With those options being said, it looks as if the club may just be given a proposal by the representatives of a player who is already plying his trade in the DStv Premiership.

If the latest information from Soccer-Laduma is anything to go by, Marumo Gallants striker Side Junior Dion is the player who is expected to be offered to Chiefs in the upcoming January transfer window.

“Sede Junior (Dion) is a player who is aiming very high about his career and he would like to see himself playing at the top.

“The aim is to get him a move out of South Africa, but if something bigger and better comes from here, why not consider it? The player’s handlers will consider a move to Chiefs,  the boy is focused and will aim to score as many goals as possible for Marumo in CAF and the league” said the source to the publication.

Dion was initially linked with Pirates before going Gallants last season.

The Buccaneers had reportedly spotted him playing for Botswana top flight side Jwaneng Galaxy but the move failed to materialise.
