Chicken Inn have targeted Mushowani Stars striker Evans Katema as a replacement for Clive Augusto who has generated a lot of interest from South African clubs.
Augusto is in a rich vein of form, leading the scoring chart with 13 goals from 13 matches, which has drawn a lot of attention of South African clubs.
The South African clubs which includes Polokwane City, Maritzburg United and Cape Town City have made contact with 2015 champions, forcing the club to start looking for possible replacements.
The Gamecocks coach Joey Antipas has admitted that they are looking for a striker, but refused to reveal that it’s Katema.
“We are in the market looking for a striker. In as much as we would have liked to keep Clive, we don’t want to stand in his way because a lot of clubs from South Africa are interested in him. We can’t disclose at the moment who we have targeted because there are contractual issues to look at,” said Antipas.
However, Chicken Inn officials on Saturday, were seen talking to Katema and some Mushowani Stars officials over the possibility of the striker moving to Bulawayo.
Katema has so far scored seven goals this season.
