Cape Town - Dynamos' Cameroonian striker Christian Epoupa could be leaving Zimbabwe for South Africa, with Bidvest Wits reportedly the front-runners for his signature.

Epoupa netted 12 goals for the Harare-based Dynamos last season, who finished second in Zimbabwe's Premier Soccer League.

But the Cameroonian could be set to leave DeMbare, with chairman Keni Mubaiwa admitting that talks are underway, although he's not willing to sell the player for less than he feels he is worth.

"A number of clubs from South Africa have made contact for Christian. Some were here in the past few days for negotiations and others have been talking to us through the phone," Mubaiwa told NewsDay.

"We have not agreed with anyone because of the price. We have put our value on the player, which the teams are saying they cannot meet. 

"The good thing on our part is that we are not desperate to sell, so we will try to get the full value of what we think our player is worth," he warned.

Bidvest Wits and Polokwane City are the two clubs linked with Epoupa, although according to a source, the defending league champions and 2017 Telkom Knockout winners have the inside lane on the marksman.

"He is likely to leave next week for Bidvest. He is currently sorting his travelling documents and the chances of him joining the club are 90%. 

"They have watched videos of him and were impressed. They have invited him for trials just as a formality, but the deal is as good as done unless another team comes with a really better offer," the source said.
