Bafana Bafana star, Percy Tau, has been heavily linked with a move to Kaizer Chiefs, which could spark a new era at Amakhosi.

Having struggled in recent years, the Soweto giants could witness an overhaul this summer after another disappointing season.

According to reports, Chiefs management is ambitiously targeting the signing of Tau from Egyptian outfit, Al Ahly.

As the Naturena outfit continue to search for a permanent manager, they are expected to bring in a new technical crew to turn their fortunes around.

Efforts are also underway to bring in some quality players who can return the PSL giants to their glory days, The South African reports.

Amakhosi have spent heavily on bringing several players in over the past two seasons, but there has been little or no success.

Tau could join Kaizer Chiefs' many signings

Before the start of the 2022/23 season, Chiefs signed George Matlou, Kamohelo Mahlatsi, Dillan Solomons, Ashley du Preez, Zitha Kwinika, Yusuf Maart, and Siyethemba Sithebe.

As the season progressed, the club added Christian Saile, Edmilson Dove, and Caleb Bimenyimana to the squad.

Two of these 10 players have already left the club, while five are already said to be on the transfer list.

Last summer, Chiefs revamped their playing squad, making nine signings, including Given Msimango, Edson Castillo, Ranga Chivaviro, Mduduzi Mdantsane, Thathoyaone Dithlokwe, Pule Mmodi, and Tebogo Potsane.

They later added Luke Fleurs, Jasond Gonzales, and Sibongiseni Mthethwa to make it 20-plus signings in two seasons.

Now, however, Amakhosi are reportedly desperate to put things right with the signing of a new permanent coach and want Tau to kickstart their revival.

Tau linked with Zamalek of Egypt

Sports Brief earlier reported that Egyptian legend, Ahmed Hossam, popularly known as Mido, asked his former club, Zamalek, to sign Percy Tau.

However, it has been suggested he might not be interested in the move because the side is struggling at the moment, sitting 13th in the league.

Tau, who has 25 goals for his current club from 104 appearances, would likely not want to miss the FIFA Club World Cup with Al Ahly next year.
