Mushekwi race hots up in Europe

Mushekwi race hots up in Europe
At least three European topflight clubs have tabled offers for Mamelodi Sundowns' big and talented striker Nyasha Mushekwi.

Sundowns, like Egyptian clubs are not known for their keenness to release players to European clubs if the offer is not tempting, are yet to make up their minds regarding the offers apparently on the table.

Two Belgian Clubs are reported to have made firm offers to Sundowns for Mushekwi's signature. One of the two clubs will definitely be playing football in Europe, and that is a toss between KSC Lokeren and KRC Genk who qualified for UEFA second club competition.

The other Belgian team which could have been attracted to Mushekwi could only be giants Anderletch, who have the muscle to meet the financial demands of rich-club Sundowns.

There is also reported interest from a Barclays English Premier League side. West Ham and Fulham have expressed interest in the Zimbabwean striker before, and it could be any of the two who may have tabled one of the three offers on the Chloorkop outfit's table.

A move to England for the talent striker could be scuppered by stringent work permit requirements. With Zimbabwe out of top 70 teams (currently on position 106) and with Mushekwi not having collected enough caps in the past 6 months, this could put paid to his England move dream.

A move the Premiership will definitely suit Mushekwi's play, but should that not materialise now, it is to be seen if Sundowns will be enticed by a Belgian offer to let their star striker go.

Letting Mushekwi go may not be as difficult this time around as it might have been last year when West Ham made inquiries. Sundowns have purchased one of the brightest lights in the ABSA premiership last year, Edward Manqele and Ghanaian striker Emmanuel Baffou.

There is also Bafana Bafana No.1 striker Katlego Mphela, Richard Henyekanye and the untested but lethal Zimbabwe Under 23 striker Simba Sithole. There is enough arsenal at the Mamelodi club to allow club President Patrice Motsepe to sell his prized asset to Europe.

With consistent performances in the local premiership in South Africa over the past two seasons, it is just a matter of time before the 25-year old Warriors striker finds a club in Europe.
