Report: Brentford linked with summer move for FC Twente midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo

Brentford Griffin Park

Brentford are reportedly keen on signing Kamohelo Mokotjo.

As per a report in SoccerNews, the Bees are keen on signing the South African midfielder, following the appointment of Marinus Dijkhuizen as head coach.

The 24-year-old midfielder, a twice-capped South African international, moved to Twente last summer after an impressive season with PEC Zwolle, but he has not enjoyed this campaign as much.

Struggling in the Eredivisie, he made 41 appearances in all competitions, but failed to have the impact that many suspected he would.

This has led many to suspect that he will be leaving Twente this summer, and Brentford are reportedly keen on signing him.

The SoccerNews report does not state a price that will have to be paid to sign him, but he has a contract until 2018 meaning he is sure to require a considerable fee. Despite his poor campaign he is still considered a bright prospect, and the right club could get him back on the path to success.

However, Twente are being forced to sell players this summer to get their finances in order, and, despite Mokotjo’s potential, he could have to leave on the cheap.

It is believed that he is keen on the move to link up with recently appointed Brentford head coach Marinus Dijkhuizen, who is well aware of the midfielder due to their shared spells in the Netherlands.
