Chawapiwa, who joined Bakgaga from Zimbabwe’s FC Platinum at the beginning of the season, was a star performer for Baroka last season.

It seems his exploits have not gone unnoticed, as Chiefs and Sundowns are reportedly keen to sign him.

“Sundowns and Chiefs have already contacted his agent, Mike Ngobeni. They are both interested in the player. He is still contracted to Baroka, but Khurishi Mphahlele [Baroka chairman] is open to selling him if a right offer comes along,” a source told Isolezwe.

Contacted for comment Chawapiwa’s agent, Mike Ngobeni, said: “Talent is a Baroka player, so if teams are interested in him, then they must contact Baroka. I can’t comment on which team is interested in him.”
