Managing director Simon Cellar says Excelsior would welcome midfielder Luigi Bruins back to the club following his Red Bull Salzburg exit.
The Dutch attacking midfielder saw his contract terminated by the Austrian club last week after only two months at the Red Bull Arena, with his services no longer required in Salzburg.
The 24-year-old has been linked with a return to the Eredivisie and Excelsior chief Cellar is hoping to negotiate a deal.
"Yes, of course we would like to have Bruins back." Cellar told RTV Rijnmond.
"We have each other's numbers, so we will definitely talk to each other."
Bruins came through the youth ranks at Excelsior before departing for sister side Feyenoord in 2007.
After becoming a free agent when his deal in Rotterdam expired, the midfielder joined Salzburg in October but only managed three appearances for the club.
