Cape Town - Zambia striker Justin Shonga is reportedly wanted by South African Premiership duo Orlando Pirates and Baroka FC.

Shonga has been making his mark for Chipolopolo of late and netted three goals in the 2018 CHAN qualifiers, as well as three in their winning COSAFA Cup campaign a few months ago.

According to the Lusaka Times 'Orlando Pirates and Baroka FC are leading the chase for Shonga's signature'.

"I am still looking at those offers. I am yet to make a decision," the publication then quoted the 20-year-old Nkwazi marksman as saying.

Shonga added that he is also focused on trying to cement his place in the national team for next month's World Cup qualifier against Algeria.

"I have to work hard. I know the seniors are going to come. I will just keep on pushing," he said.
