Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates could be hurried to make a decision on the future of two players who have attracted interest elsewhere.

SuperSport United's appetite for the league title has increased after a decent start to the season, as they went to the FIFA World Cup break lying third on the table, seven points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

As reported in edition 1300 of Soccer Laduma, the Siya crew has uncovered that SuperSport are aiming to make a serious challenge for the DStv Premiership by making enquiries about the services of two players in the January transfer window.

Matsatsantsa, under the guidance of their most successful coach Gavin Hunt, have targeted Pirates forward Terrence Dzvukamanja, this publication understands.

Dzvukamanja has struggled to break into Jose Riveiro's core team and indications are that SuperSport are looking to make a bid for the Zimbabwean when the transfer window opens in January.

The former Bidvest Wits striker, who has worked with Hunt at that particularly club, has a contract with Pirates that expires in June next year and Matsatsantsa are willing to make the Buccaneers an offer, if the 28-year old is not in their future plans.

The Sea Robbers are believed to be close to signing striker Marou Souaibou, who is in the Cameroon squad for the World Cup in Qatar, from Coton Sport and indications are that he could be officially acquired in January.

Pirates could be looking to free up a foreign spot and Dzvukamanja may be one of the players sacrificed.

Another player on SuperSport's radar, the Siya crew has been led to believe, is Chiefs midfielder Njabulo Blom.

As previously reported by this publication, Blom's contract negotiations with Amakhosi over a new deal has stalled, as the 22-year old's agent Rob Moore insists that the new salary package offered by the Glamour Boys does not meet their valuation of the utility player.

The Siya crew has been informed by insiders at Chiefs that the Naturena-based side acknowledge how valuable Blom is to the club and the sources believe the Glamour Boys could eventually accede to his demands.

However, indications are that should Chiefs and Blom not reach an agreement by 1 January, SuperSport could table an offer for him.

Amakhosi seem to have a contingency plan in place, should they lose Blom, as head coach Arthur Zwane has been blooding another academy graduate, midfielder Samkelo Zwane in the first team.

The Glamour Boys will also have an option to intensify efforts to sign Stellenbosch midfielder Sibongiseni Mthethwa, who has been one of their targets, as previously reported by the Siya crew.
