Mosimane is still looking for replacements for Percy Tau and Khama Billiat following their departure in the off-season.

The Brazilians mentor revealed that he spotted Junior in 2016 while on a scouting mission in Portugal.

The defending Premiership champions, who were held to a 1-1 draw by Wits on Sunday, already have three South Americans in their squad in Ricardo Nascimento, Gaston Sirino and Jose Ali Meza.

"We are watching him. We are looking at him. We will not make a decision now," Mosimane said, as quoted by KickOff website.

"We are not really under pressure to make a decision. We will look at him. He is a good player."

"I saw him when we recruited Ricardo. I went to Portugal to watch Ricardo and he was playing against Ricardo. He did well."
