KPL moneybags Wazito FC are set to continue with their spending pree and this time, they are set to take it across the borders.
Various reports indicate that the Badoer Investments owned side have their eyes set on Burundi International Karim Nizigiyimana.
Talks between the former Gor Mahia man and Wazito have commenced and a deal is reportedly close.
Karim is not new to the Kenya Premier League having already had a taste of the same with Champions Gor Mahia who he joined back in 2015.
While at Kogallo, he was named the Kenyan Premier League Defender of the year in 2015.
He was also part of the Burundi team that took part in the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The 30 year old currently attached to Uganda Premier League side Vipers SC played a key role in Burundi’s AFCON qualification campaign helping the Nation qualify for the continental showpiece for the first time ever in their history.
They however bowed out at the group stages after failing to win any match.
Wazito’s interest in Nizigiyimana comes just hours after they completed the signing of Harambee Stars defender Bernard Ochieng from Vihiga United.
Should Wazito sign Karim, he will be the 8th player to join the KPL newbies after Derrick Otanga, Joshua Otieno and Kelvin Omondi from Sony Sugar FC, Pistone Mutamba from Sofapaka, Gad Mathews from Kariobangi Sharks, Bernard Ochieng from Vihiga United and Kenya U17 keeper Bixente Otieno.
Apart from Karim, Wazito is also reportedly interested in former Nzoia Sugar striker Elvis Rupia who currently plys his trade with Zambian side, Power Dynamos.
KCB attackers Crispinus Onyango and Kennedy ‘Daddy’ Owino are also on the moneybags’ radar and they could soon decamp to the Fred Ambani coached side. Completing the list is Nairobi Stima holding midfielder Brian Musa.
