Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore is contemplating a loan move for Southampton striker Leon Best.
With Calvin Zola currently sidelined due to a foot problem Moore has been exploring alternative options.
Leeds turned down a fresh approach for Jermaine Beckford earlier this week so Moore has turned his attention to Best.
However, with Zola now running again and possibly back in full training next week, Moore will take advice from physio Les Parry before deciding whether to pursue a move for Best.
"There's Beckford and there's also Best at Southampton and we know he's back there after his loan at Bournemouth," he said.
"You wouldn't criticise Chris Greenacre speed-wise and Gareth Taylor is a target man, but Best is a bit different with his pace and if we wanted to change things, he could do that for us.
"He's a young lad whose played quite a few matches and he would be someone we're interested in but it all depends on the noises I get from the physio and if Calvin is training again next week, all the loan moves will be put on ice."
