Sky Sports understands that Swindon Town are keen to take Grimsby Town striker Anthony Elding to the County Ground.
With the Robins currently occupying a place in the League Two play-off standings manager Paulo Di Canio wants to ensure momentum is maintained and sees the experienced Elding as the ideal striker to fire Swindon to automatic promotion.
Elding joined the Mariners in the summer from League One Rochdale after a last minute snub of League Two strugglers Plymouth Argyle, just before the start of the season.
The former Leeds and Stevenage striker has scored 12 times this season, forming a formidable strike partnership with Liam Hearn, who has also attracted the interest of a number of Championship clubs.
Elding, whose contract runs out in the summer, told Sky Sports: "Apparently they've been in contact with my agent but right now I'm enjoying playing at Grimsby and to stay here for the long-term would be my preferred option as we're doing well and I'd like to keep the family settled in the area."
