Simba SC looking to buy Nigeria striker Lokosa

Tanzanian giants Simba SC are yet again in the headlines as their ambitious transfer plans for the summer enter full swing. 

After signing KMC striker Charles Ilamfia and Kenyan defender Joash Onyango, the Dar es Salaam side is trying to sign Nigerian striker Junior Lokosa, according to Nigerian Andrew Randa

The 26-year-old most recently played for Tunisian giants Esperance de Tunis, but he was released earlier this summer. 

Lokosa notably won the CAF Champions League with the Tunisian side last season.

He joined Esperance on a contract till June 2021 from Kano Pillars in January 2019 after finishing as top scorer in the 2018 Nigeria Professional Football League season with 19 goals.

During his time with Pillars he made his only appearance with the national team, coming on as a substitute for the Super Eagles in a 1-1 friendly with DR Congo. 

Simba have pledged to announce two new signings per day to form a ‘new identity’ leading into the new season.
