Al Hilal are rumoured to have offered Baroka a lucrative package for the 28 year-old player who is known as the penalty and free-kick specialist.

Phiri moved to South Africa when he joined Bidvest Wits from Zimbabwean side Caps United.

He then had loan spells at Platinum FC in South Africa and Township Rollers in Botswana.

The attacking midfielder joined Baroka FC in 2019 from Ajax Cape Town (now Cape Town Spurs) and made 52 appearances for the Limpopo outfit.
