Gor Mahia’s Deadly Striker On Orlando Pirates’ Radar

Orlando Pirates are keen to strengthen their attacking front, having faced inconsistencies in their performances this season. To address this, they have set their sights on the in-form Kenyan international Benson Omala, who has been in scintillating form for Gor Mahia in the Football Kenya Federation Premier League. Omala has scored 19 goals in 19 matches, eight more than his nearest competitor, Elvis Rupia of Police FC.

The Sea Robbers signed Cameroon international Souaibou Marou in the recent transfer window, but the Indomitable Lion has struggled to settle, playing just 27 minutes in the Premier Soccer League without any returns.

According to a top Gor Mahia official, Orlando Pirates have been showing interest in Omala for a few weeks now. The official stated that they will do what is best for both the club and the player, and while Omala’s qualities match their ambitions, they are in the initial stages of the discussions.

Omala joined Gor Mahia straight after high school and made a name for himself at the now-defunct Western Stima, even though he was still a teenager. At only 21 years old, Omala is a full international and is considered to be the future of the Kenyan national team. The versatile attacker has also played for Swedish side FC Linkoping City, albeit on loan.

Omala is currently focused on helping Gor Mahia win the Kenyan Premier League title, while Orlando Pirates are chasing the Nedbank Cup and a spot in next season’s CAF Champions League competition.

If the deal goes through, Omala will join a star-studded Orlando Pirates squad, which includes Thembinkosi Lorch, Gabadinho Mhango, and Deon Hotto. His impressive goal-scoring record and attacking prowess could provide the much-needed boost for the club’s attacking front, helping them to push for the PSL title next season.
