Hull City are to discuss a deal with Aaron Mclean after being given permission by Peterborough United to speak to the striker.
Peterborough director of football Barry Fry recently admitted that the club may have to cash in on one of their influential attacking players in the January transfer window.
Craig Mackail-Smith has been linked with a £3million move to the Championship, but it appears Mclean could be on his way to the second tier.
Mclean is one of several striking targets for the Tigers as manager Nigel Pearson looks to pep up a side which has scored just 19 goals in 21 league games this season.
A bid for Swindon Town hot-shot Charlie Austin has been rejected, while reports suggest there is also an offer on the table for Leicester City's Matty Fryatt.
Pearson has also put in place a move for Mclean and the 27-year-old has been given the green light to hold talks over a switch to the KC Stadium.
The former Grays Athletic forward has netted 14 goals for Peterborough this season and has been a consistent scorer since his arrival at London Road four years ago.
