Sacked Paris Saint Germain midfielder Vikash Dhorasoo has been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid.
The former French international has been a free agent since mid-October when he was dismissed from the Parc des Princes for his criticism of coach Guy Lacombe.
Sam Allardyce's Bolton Wanderers side were close to signing the player in the summer, and remain a possible destination for his services.
But with Maxi Rodriguez and Martin Petrov both sustaining long-term injuries at Vicente Calderon, coach Javier Aguirre could well do with the extra cover.
Reports suggest that Dhorasoo would jump at the chance to move to the seventh-placed Liga side, as they look to compete with Spain's biggest names domestically.
