Masandawana are believed to see the 20-year-old Mahlambi as a perfect replacement for the departing Percy Tau who has been linked with a move to the English Premiership.

Mahlambi has personally won back-to-back titles since joining newly-crowned Egyptian league champions Al Ahly from then reigning Absa Premiership winners Bidvest Wits.

Mahlambi made history to become the first South African to appear in and then win a league title in Egypt after signing a four-year deal in 2017.

Meanwhile Tau is believed to be inching closer to a move to English Premiership side Brighton and Hove Albion with a record-breaking R50 million deal set to be accepted by Sundowns.
