Sky Sports understands Notts County are lining up a move for St Johnstone striker Craig Beattie.
Notts County are in the market for striking reinforcements after allowing Lee Hughes to leave Meadow Lane for Port Vale.
Magpies boss Keith Curle has held a long-term interest in former Celtic and West Brom striker Beattie and tried to sign him in the summer.
Curle is now ready to rekindle his interest in Beattie as he looks to fill the void left by Hughes' departure.
Beattie is well down the pecking order at St Johnstone and he has only made four appearances all season so he could be tempted to move on in search of regular first-team football.
