Bournemouth are hoping to persuade Craig Fleming to leave Norwich City to move to Dean Court.
Fleming is out of contract at the end of the season and the club captain has made just 12 appearances for Norwich this term.
Reports suggest the centre-half could be available on a free transfer in January and Bournemouth boss Kevin Bond is keen to explore the potential signing.
"He has given fantastic service to Norwich," Bond told the Daily Echo.
"He has got lots of experience and is a dependable centre-half.
"I definitely think he would be the kind of person I would like at the club.
"I am led to believe he might be surplus to requirements at Norwich and if that is the case I would certainly like to explore the possibility of persuading him to come here."
Bond, though, was quick to dismiss suggestions that Cherries striker James Hayter could join Norwich as part of any deal.
