Basomboli, who currently plays for Nchanga Rangers in Zambia, was recently evaluated by Chiefs to determine if he would be a good fit for the team.
SABC Sport reported that the 22-year-old is likely to travel to South Africa to finalize his contract with Chiefs following the smooth resumption of transfer talks between the two teams.
The highly-regarded forward returned to the Rangers lineup on Saturday, scoring twice from the penalty spot as his Zambian club defeated ZANACO 2-1, although both goals were scored from the spot.
However, the youngster’s qualities and what he brings with his left-footed skills will undoubtedly suffice to delight Amakhosi fans.

Kaizer Chiefs are evaluating Chistian Saile Basomboli, a striker from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, according to @SundayWorldZA. In Zambia, he played for Nchanga Rangees.

Recent signs suggest that Amakhosi may want to recruit a couple more players in the upcoming transfer window, since they are still far from being a polished product.
In addition, Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana’s absence has highlighted the Chiefs’ relative lack of striker depth, since he has been shouldering a significant amount of responsibility.
Coach Arthur Zwane has previously made no secret of the fact that Chiefs are at least in the process of refining a profile of potential players — and forwards in particular – they may seek in the upcoming transfer window.
