KickOff.com can reveal that Ajax Cape Town are chasing the services of Kenyan striker Jesse Jackson Were.
Were is currently on the books of Zambian champions ZESCO United where he has a buyout clause of US$160 000 (R2,155 million).
This website can confirm that Free State Stars have already withdrawn their interest due to the buyout clause, leaving The Urban Warriors at the forefront to land the 28-year-old.
Were, who has proven his goal scoring qualities through his time in Kenya and Zambia, signed a two-year extension with ZESCO United in July.
Were has scored 34 goals in the last two years at ZESCO.
Ajax have been thin this season upfront and have indicated their intentions to reinforce in the upcoming January transfer window.
They recently had Malian forward Mohammed Diallo on trial but decided not to sign him.
