Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed that he wants to sign two attacking players in January to strengthen his squad.

Masandawana have their work cut out for them this season as they attempt to successfully defend their Absa Premiership crown against Kaizer Chiefs, who have a seven-point lead at the top of the standings.

Aside from the domestic title chase, Sundowns are also in the midst of their CAF Champions League campaign and Mosimane is well aware that his squad will need reinforcements to deal with all their fixtures.

"I think that we should sign two players," said Mosimane, according to IOL.

"If you look at the way we are, we are getting thin. We need two players. We need an attacker, somebody who can help us score goals because when Mauricio (Affonso) isn't there we don't have a No 9.

"Lebo (Maboe) is a No 9 but he hasn't been on top form, which is why we play Vila (Sibusiso Vilakazi) there and Ali Mezza who likes to play on the side. I don't want to be going to Thapelo (Morena) and them to play there. I don't think it's right.

"The second one is going to be another attacker. We need to reinforce a little bit upfront, maybe a winger. If he is a winger, he must be a powerful winger and be a little bit better than Pitso (Siphelele Mkhulise). He must have a presence. We are on top of somebody. A very good player, but he doesn't play here. He is a foreigner."

Sundowns are currently in Algeria as they prepare to take on USM Alger in the CAF Champions League on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 18:00 (SA time).
