Rumor: SKC making offer on Guy Mbenza

Another day and another rumor. This time Sporting KC is reported to be after a 19-year-old striker playing in Tunisia

This image has nothing to with the player or club he is currently playing for now. This is goal scoring confetti from a Sporting KC game since there are no legal pictures to use of Mbenza. But if he signs and scores for SKC then he should see confetti. (We like goal scoring confetti).

It is being reported that Sporting Kansas City has made an offer on Congolese forward Guy Mbenza. The 19-year-old plays for Stade Tunisien in Tunisia.

“While his name was circulating in Europe and especially in France, Guy Mbenza is preparing to leave the Stade Tunisien for MLS . According to various Tunisian sources, the Congolese striker is the subject of an offer from Sporting Kansas City”

It is reported that Sporting KC has made a $ 500,000 offer for Mbenza. The Brazzaville, Congo native was also reported in other outlets to be drawing interest from various French Lique 1 teams like Bordeaux, Rennes and Nantes.

IF the rumor is true, Mbenza could be converted to winger for additional depth out wide but would be more likely to be slotted in as a backup to Alan Pulido, SKC’s new striker.

Not much is known about Mbenza but he does appear to have some speed with a nose for goal and at just 19, he has room to grow.
