Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns are reportedly closer to landing the services of highly-rated Al Ahly striker Phakamani Mahlambi as they look to fill the void left by Percy Tau and Khama Billiat.

Mahlambi has struggled for playing time since moving to the Egyptian giants last year from Bidvest Wits, and now appears to be surplus to requirements in Cairo.

With Billiat having departed for fierce rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Tau making a switch to Brighton in the English Premier League, it seems the 20-year-old is the Brazilians primary target.

According to reports in Egypt, the forward has not been registered for the 2018/19 campaign and the Club of the Century already have their full quota of foreigners as well.

As such, the Bafana Bafana international appears set for a move to the Premiership champions with coach Pitso Mosimane making no secret of his desire to land the rising star.

With that said, Al Ahly are said to want to loan the player whereas Downs are seeking a permanent transfer to Pretoria.
