Skysports.com understands Peterborough United have made a bid to sign Norwich City striker Cody McDonald.
The 25-year-old impressed during a loan spell at Gillingham last season, scoring 25 goals in 41 League Two appearances.
He is not part of Paul Lambert's plans following Norwich's promotion to the Premier League, but could be offered the chance to play in the Championship.
Sheffield Wednesday were linked with the forward earlier in the summer, while Coventry City are also understood to be interested in McDonald.
However, Peterborough are thought to be in pole position to finalise a deal for the player before the transfer window closes on Wednesday night.
Posh director of football Barry Fry has confirmed the club hope to sign a striker and a midfielder on loan from the top flight before the deadline.
"We are after a striker who has been a long-term target of ours and we hope to have him here by Wednesday," said Fry in the Peterborough Evening Telegraph.
"We are also working on a loan deal for a Premier League midfielder."
