Cape Town - AmaZulu have been linked with a double swoop for Black Leopards attacker Lesedi Kapinga and former Golden Arrows midfielder Siphelele Magubane.

Kapinga has earned plenty of plaudits this season for his five goals in the league thus far, with former Leopards boss Luc Eymael even going as far as to say that Kapinga has the potential to be the next best thing to come out of South African football after Percy Tau.

Meanwhile, Magubane was recently released by Arrows, having served the club loyally for a number of seasons.

When asked if AmaZulu were lining up approaches for the duo, general manager Lunga Sokhela responded:

"He's a good player (Magubane), there's no doubt. Kapinga is a good player too you know, those are good players, Sokhela told KickOff.

"Whether or not they are going to come here I don't know. Those are top players; you can't deny that."

When asked if there had been talks with the relevant parties, Sokhela replied: "No [laughs] there's no talks with any camp per se.

"You know those are players that have been linked to us by the media and we are openly saying they are good players.

"Kapinga, we hear his contact is ending in June which is interesting and Magubane now has his clearance but those are good players, we won't deny that."
