Lester, a summer transfer target of Coventry City, has found himself down the pecking order at the City Ground with the arrival of Darren Huckerby on-loan from Manchester City.
Player/manager Paul Groves has been alerted to Lester's predicament and is ready to swoop for the 27-year-old striker.
"Jack is someone we're aware of," said Groves.
"We haven't made an enquiry, but he's a good player and I wouldn't rule out anything at the moment."
Lester left the Mariners in January 2000 for £300,000, but has David Johnson, Marlon Harewood, Huckerby and Andy Reid all above him in the firing line under Paul Hart, and the striker could now seek first-team action elsewhere.
