Skysports.com understands Scunthorpe are lining up a move for former Bradford star Gareth Evans.
Evans is available on a free transfer after seeing out his contract at Bradford.
Bradford were keen on securing the attacking midfielder on a new deal, but the cash-strapped League Two side could not afford a new contract for Evans.
A number of League One and League Two clubs are believed to have expressed an interest in signing the former Crewe and Macclesfield man.
However, Scunthorpe boss Alan Knill is hoping to steal a march on their rivals by luring Evans to Glanford Park.
