Chiefs Land New South American Striker

Kaizer Chiefs have agreed terms with Colombian striker Efmamjjasond González on a season-long loan from Bolivian club Real Santa Cruz.

The 24-year-old striker who has been linked with moves to the Botola Pro in recent weeks is a product of the esteemed Atlético Nacional academy and was touted as a major prospect.

However, he didn’t quite break into the first team before he made a move to Argentina with San Lorenzo – where he then went on two separate loan moves.

But his move to Bolivia has sparked life in his career where he netted eight goals in the first 11 games of the season which attracted interest in North Africa.

However, iDiski Times can confirm Chiefs have agreed terms with Santa Cruz and the player for a season-long loan with an option to make the deal permanent.

The robust striker will now add further options to Chiefs attack with Ranga Chivaviro, while Bonfils Caleb Bimenyimana could now be headed out despite head coach Molefi Ntseki stating he will form part of the first team squad.

Currently, Chiefs have Bimenyimana, Christian Saile, Edson Castillo, Thatayaone Ditlhokwe as foreign quota spots while Dove Edmilson is likely to have secured South African citizenship, having first arrived in the country in 2017 with Cape Town City.
