A number of European and South African clubs are waiting for the transfer season to  open to snap up former Caps United and national team striker Tostao Kwashi, who was last season ranked the best striker in Vietnam.

Well placed sources close to the player said four European clubs from – England (2), Scotland and France were interested in signing the free scoring striker who scored 65 goals in three season in Vietnam.

Two South African clubs are also said to be interested assessing the players who can also play in midfield.

“Six clubs have shown interest in him (Kwashi) but we are waiting for a formal approach, we would eventually settle for the best deal that is put on the table,” sources close to the player said.

Kwashi (28), currently in Zimbabwe after his contract with Gach dong Tah Long An expired, told The Zimbabwean the he has been keeping himself fit as he waits for the transfer period to open.

“I can not comment on the clubs that have shown interest, until an official approach is made during the transfer window,” he said. He would not rule out a move to South Africa either.

Statistics from Vietnam, derived from all the actions that took place during the just-ended season which include goals, shots on target, corners, fouls, offsides, passes, tackles, assists, blocks and clearances – showed that Kwashi is rated in the top five players.

ootball in Vietnam is not followed by most Zimbabweans a situation which deprived many Zimbabwean of the privilege to watch Kwashi’s magic on the ground.

washi has played for the under 17’s, under 20’s, under 23’s and the senior team.  His father, Steven ‘the Dude’ Kwashi, is a former soccer great who played for the national team. Steven clinched the best coach of the year award three times in Zimbabwe.

Kwashi’s goalscoring instinct could be good news to the national team during their 2010 African Cup of Nations finals in Angola as well as the World Cup in South Africa.

The national team has been struggling to score, with the strikers firing blanks, a situation which cost the country their third consecutive Africa Cup of Nation qualifier next year.
