South African side Orlando Pirates are reportedly keen to acquire the services of Botswana international Mogakolodi Ngele.
The 26-year-old forward spent last season on the books of Bidvest Wits on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns.
Ngele helped Wits clinch their first ever Premier Soccer League (PSL) title and he has since returned to his parent club.
Recent reports have indicated that Sundowns are open to selling the left-footed player, who has won one PSL title with the club.
According to The Citizen source, Pirates are confident of completing Ngele's signing before this weekend's Carling Black Label Cup.
“They want Ngele and have made an offer to Sundowns. He might even be available by Saturday for the Carling Cup,” the source said.
Pirates are scheduled to take on their fierce rivals Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.
Ngele was linked with a possible move to Pirates before he joined Sundowns from Platinum Stars in 2014.
