The English interest is from Premiership returnees West Ham United, who are coached by the Zimbabwean striker's former boss at Blackburn Rovers, Sam Allardyce.
A club in Abu Dhabi are also reportedly interested.
Mwaruwari's decision to return to play in the Premiership is influenced by family, as he is married to a South African and has multi-million rand property investments in Johannesburg. He has been linked to Mamelodi Sundowns, Bidvest Wits, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs.
"South Africa is his destination," his manager Ralph Nkomo reveals.
Nkomo will be meeting with Mwaruwari in Johannesburg at the end of next week to seal a deal.
"We are talking to four clubs and we will be making a decision in 10 days time when I meet up with Benji back in Johannesburg," he says.
"I am back in France while he has gone back home. For him he wants to come and play in South Africa for family reasons and be closer to home [Zimbabwe] where he has set up his foundation.
"In this trade you don't turn down teams but instead you listen to offers. All teams that are interested in South Africa are pushing hard because we are talking to decision makers. His decision will not be swayed by money but rather where he will still enjoy his football, which is why the Middle East option is not so attractive despite the money being good there.
"We are not under pressure to take the first offer but we want the sporting offer to take priority over the finances. He has played in Europe for the last 12 years and so not all decisions will be influenced by money," says Nkomo.
Though Wits don't have the stature of the other three South African clubs that are keen on Benjani, the fact that his friend Tinashe Nengomasha is already at Wits could sway the decision.
KickOff.com is aware that the Sundowns bid could be diluted by a conflict of interest at the club, though the Brazilians are still a strong contender.
"The Wits coach [Roger de Sa] is a fantastic guy and Benji has his friends at Wits already, so maybe that will influence where he goes in the end," Nkomo says.
"Wits have a good chance of getting him, but Chiefs remain a possibility, just like Pirates and Sundowns. I have spoken to Bobby [Motaung] and he knows where we stand.
"However, we will go for the best option that balances the sporting and financial aspect. The club that gets him will also benefit from the marketing value that he brings. However, 10 days from now we will have the answer as to where Benji goes ..."
