Sky Sports understands Omar Kossoko will spend a couple of days on trial at Bristol City and is hoping to be offered a contract by the Championship club.
Kossoko is available on a free transfer after leaving Auxerre over the summer following the French side's relegation from Ligue 1.
The winger only joined Auxerre from Amiens in 2011 and he made 19 appearances in the top flight last season.
He undertook a trial with the Robins' Championship rivals Crystal Palace recently, but failed to secure a contract with Dougie Freedman's side.
The 24-year-old is now due to try his luck at Ashton Gate, with Robins boss Derek McInnes keen to improve his squad before the next game against Blackburn Rovers.
Kossoko has also been attracting interest from clubs in Greece, but it is understood that he is eager to be offered a deal by the Robins.
