The Belgian mentor has been touted to replace Steve Komphela, who has since resigned as Amakhosi coach last month after three trophyless seasons with the club.
Eymael guided Ea Lla Koto to the Nedbank Cup on Saturday in a 1-0 victory over Maritzburg United at Cape Town Stadium, and said in his post-match press conference that the Soweto giants will need to table offers this week before he leaves for Belgium.
"I have never had an official offer in my hand," he said as quoted by KickOff website.
"I know there’s interest - there is no smoke without fire. If something is going to happen, it has to happen this week.
"Because, if nothing happens, when I come back from Belgium I will go back to Free State. I will not call or leave a letter like some other people saying I won’t come back.
"I will stay at Free State Stars if nothing happens this week. I am very happy at Stars."
The 58-year-old also revealed that he has had offers from two Belgium clubs but will only accept a job where he can compete for silverware.
"I have had two offers from Belgium, from St Truiden and Waasland-Beveren," he said.
"I would really like to return to Belgium, but only for a very good team where I can compete for the top five or six.
"If Chiefs come to me after this week, I will not go to Chiefs, I will go to Free State Stars.
"They have never contacted me, and that’s the truth. If no one comes by the end of the week, I will go to back to Stars because I promised them that - I’m not a liar."
