Aucho is set to link up with former Ugandan Cranes coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic, who has been following the former Tusker player. The 24-year-old, Ugandan is now a free agent following a short stint with Serbian giants Red Star Belgrade.
"Aucho is heading to Pirates, 'Mich'o was in Uganda this week," said the source as quoted by South African portal, Kickoff.
"He is going to just sign. He is a free agent. Remember Ivica Stankovic is acting as his agent and Ivica is the agent to Micho."
Aucho is understood to have parted ways with Red Star due to a contractual dispute. Sredojevic worked with Aucho during his time in charge of The Cranes prior to joining Pirates in August.
