The Pool boss has signed striker Paul Robinson after a successful trial at the club and has offered a contract to defender Andrew Jordan.
Former Newcastle forward Robinson has been training with the Victoria Park outfit throughout the summer and has bagged three goals in three pre-season games.
Jordan, the son of former Scotland international Joe, has been on trial with York City and had been offered a one-year deal to stay at Bootham Crescent.
Now Cooper is hoping the lure of playing Second Division football and a longer contract will tempt the ex-Bristol City and Cardiff defender to sign for Hartlepool.
One player who seems unlikely to be joining is veteran front man Bob Taylor despite being linked with a move to the North East side.
The former West Brom forward said: "I've spoken to somebody from Hartlepool, which would be ideal for me because it's going home to the North East where I'm from, but we're settled in the Midlands."
