Jali was linked with a move to an unnamed Bundesliga club last week but KickOff.com can reveal that the Premier League now looks his more likely destination.
Agent Paschalis Tountouris of Prosport International admits that there is real interest in signing the former AmaTuks player and believes Jali has played his last game for The Buccaneers after helping them win two successive PSL Trebles.
"I think he will be leaving," Tountouris tells KickOff.com. "There is interest from England but we have to be very careful which kind of club he chooses.
"We are looking for the best place for Jali to go because it's important that the first move to Europe has to be successful. He would like to go to Europe but only to the right club."
Jali has a contract with Pirates that expires in 2014, meaning that any interested clubs would have to make a sizeable bid to lure him away from Parktown.
At present, he would not meet the strict requirements for a UK permit, having not started enough competitive games for South Africa, but that is unlikely to be a major problem given his status as an emerging star.
