Nkana want a record transfer fee for Walter Bwalya
MTN Super League side Nkana will only allow red hot striker Walter Bwalya Binene if the money is right for both parties, Zambianfootball.co.zm understands.
According to the ZamFoot Crew sources in Kitwe’s Wusakile’s township, the Kalampa executive want a minimum of $300, 000 for the former Forest Rangers striker.
The left footed hitman entered the history books after he won the golden boot with 24 goals this year. And his exploits in front of goal hasn’t gone unnoticed as several clubs on the continent and Europe are after his signature.
On the local scene, big spenders duo Zanaco and Zesco United are also suitors but it is the likes of ETP Mazembe, Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs, Zamalek and Al Ahly that are likely to be his destination.
It is also believed that Walter is ambitious and is favouring a move to Europe but the only hitch is that Euro clubs want him to attend trials but Nkana just want a outright purchase.
“Remember the stories of Knowledge Musona and Collins Mbesuma. Euro clubs paid a lot of money for them and took a risk [signed them without trials] but ended failing to make the grade,” a ZamFoot Crew source.
South of the equator, Walter is regarded highly and has been compared to Musona and Mbesuma. In a calendar year, only Mbesuma has a better record of 25 goals that the 24 year old.
Zanaco fans will claim that had it not been for injuries, Patrick Kabamba could have broken Mbesuma’s record at Kaizer Chiefs after the Congolese born striker hit a staggering 20 goals in 20 games in 2009 prompting former Chipolopolo Boys coach Herve Renard to push the Football Association of Zambia, FAZ to get him a Zambian passport.
With Walter, who started his career in Congo with Lubumbashi Sports and also had a spell with Don Bosco, before he joined ‘Fole Malembe’ in 2012 before he guided them to promotion in 2014, there has also been a similar campaign from the Chipolopolo faithful his inclusion.
