Amakhosi have been inconsistent thus far this season and there those who are doubting team's ability to compete for honours

Kaizer Chiefs came into the current campaign hoping to end their seven-trophy under a new era led by coach Arthur Zwane.

However, the Glamour Boys have blown hot and cold so far and they have spent the better of the term in the bottom half of the PSL standings.

With the current PSL transfer window set to close on Thursday at midnight, many Amakhosi fans feel that there are areas that need beefing up in the club's squad. 

GOAL looks at players who would improve Chiefs' squad and put the team in a good position to mount a serious challenge for the PSL championship. 

  • Kamohelo Mokotjo - Bafana Bafana vs Angola

    Kamohelo Mokotjo - Free agent

    Having entered the twilight of his career, defensive midfielder Cole Alexander, 33, has underperformed this season and Chiefs have relied heavily on Njabulo Blom and it is quite clear Yusuf Maart is more effective in an advanced role in midfield.

    Mokotjo, who is a tried and tested defensive midfielder, is available on a free transfer and the former Bafana Bafana star has already offered his services to Amakhosi following his trial stint at his former Dutch club, FC Twente. 

  • Kermit Erasmus, Mamelodi Sundowns, April 2022

    Kermit Erasmus - Mamelodi Sundowns

    The experienced striker has fallen out of favour at Sundowns with coach Rhulani Mokwena having indicated that the club is open to offloading him.

    At the age of 32, Erasmus remains of the most lethal strikers in the PSL and he would improve any other club in the country's striking department. His agent has reportedly offered him to Chiefs in the last few weeks.

  • Given Msimango TS Galaxy

    Given Msimango - TS Galaxy

    Chiefs head coach Arthur Zwane has had to make changes in his defence with error-ridden centre-backs Siyabonga Ngezana and Njabulo Ngcobo having made mistakes leading to goals and they have since been relegated to the bench.

    One central defender who would bring stability and leadership to the Soweto giants' defence is Galaxy captain Msimango who has also indicated that he is open to moving to the Naturena giants.

  • Judas Moseamedi - Stellenbosch FC

    The Glamour Boys released two centre forwards Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro at the end of last season, and so far the club has signed one targetman in Bonfils Caleb Bimenyimana.

    In Moseamedi, Chiefs would be getting a proven centre forward in the PSL who has scored 29 goals from 67 league starts. The 28-year-old has fallen out of favour at Stellies where he is yet to start a game this season, but he remains a dangerous marksman.

  • Pule Mmodi, Golden Arrows, February 2022

    Pule Mmodi - Golden Arrows

    The Soweto giants' key attackers Keagan Dolly and Khama Billiat have struggled for form this season and the former has also spent some time on the bench as a result.

    Chiefs attempted to sign Pule Mmodi during the current window, but they failed to secure his services. Since then the flying winger has been in great form, scoring in four successive games and only Peter Shalulile of Mamelodi Sundowns has scored more PSL goals than Mmodi this term.

  • Kaizer Motaung Jr & Arthur Zwane, Kaizer Chefs, May 2022

    What is the club saying about reinforcing the squad?

    Zwane has stated that the club is prepared to wait until January 2023 to add new players to his squad if there is a need to do so.

    “Three months is around the corner in terms of the next transfer window period in January," Zwane said.

    "I think that will give us the opportunity again to say where we need to beef up. For now, I think we have enough cover in all positions. 

    "We have two or three players in one position. So I think that will help us until we see as the season progresses where we can beef up.”

  • Yusuf Maart, Kaizer Chiefs, September 2022
