- Kaizer Chiefs have reportedly agreed terms to sign Lazarus Kambole from Zambia’s Zesco United
- The striker boasts the record for the fastest hatrick when he scored thrice in 5 minutes in the African Champions League
- Chiefs are yet to complete a deal with Zesco, but supporters have already made their voices heard via social media
Kaizer Chiefs have just finished one of their worst seasons in their illustrious history.
The club finished outside of the top 8 in the PSL and suffered a humiliating loss to TS Galaxy in the Nedbank Cup final.
Having gone four seasons without silverware, the club seems to be focused on a player overhaul during the transfer window.
Briefly.co.za previously reported on numerous player departures and its now been reported that Chiefs are on the cusp of signing a talented striker.
Far Post ZA reported that the Amakhosi have agreed terms with Zesco United striker, Lazarus Kambole.
Kambole comes with some pedigree as he’s scored the fastest hatrick in continental football history.
He achieved the feat in August 2018 when Zesco played Mbabane Swallows in the African Champions League, scoring 3 goals in 5 minutes.
The report indicates that personal terms have been agreed with the player, but the two clubs still need to agree on a deal.
Briefly.co.za noted that supporters wasted no time in having their say on the matter.
Some supporters felt the added firepower upfront would be pointless if the midfield doesn’t improve.
However, others seemed overly excited to get the deal over the line.
