Though Kopitovic top scored in the league for Rovers this year they finished third and failed to qualify for continental football next season.

Rovers – one of the money-rich and most supported clubs in the Southeast Asian country – play in the Singapore Cup final on Saturday against Hougang United with Kopitovic set to play after being rested on Tuesday in the second leg of the semi-finals

There have been concerns over the quality of the league in Singapore his scoring numbers have given reason for him to be considered.

The only other player from Montenegro to ever play in the PSL before was Slavko Damjanovic who spent six months at BidVest Wits in 2017 playing six games before returning home.

Hungarian forward Balint Bajner – who previously been in the books of Borussia Dortmund, West Ham, and Ipswich Town – has also been linked with Chiefs who only have Burundian forward Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana as the only number nine in their ranks.

AmaKhosi have been receiving an incredible number of profiles from agents from across the world as their search for another forward continues.
