Skysports.com understands Crystal Palace are eyeing a move for Hibernian striker Derek Riordan.
The Scotland international is currently taking in a second spell at Easter Road, having also turned out for Celtic.
He will see his contract at Hibs expire in the summer and he is expected to leave on a free transfer.
His possible availability has drawn attention from numerous clubs, with proven goalscorers notoriously difficult to come by.
Palace boss Dougie Freedman is among those scouring the market for new recruits ahead of the re-opening of the transfer window.
He is shopping around for bargains in the free agent market and believes Riordan will be one of the best around.
The 28-year-old sits third on the Scottish Premier League all-time goalscorers list and won the 2010/11 goal of the season award and the SPL's end of season awards on Tuesday.
Unsurprisingly, given his track record, MLS outfit Houston Dynamo are also believed to be sniffing around.
They have expressed an interest in snapping up Riordan as their 'designated player'.
