Inverness Caldeonian Thistle have confirmed their interest in Hibernian striker Dean Shiels.
The 22-year-old is expected to be freed by Hibs this summer and Caley, along with Aberdeen and Falkirk, are ready to make an offer.
"Dean certainly fits the bill in terms of what we are looking for in a striker," said Inverness' director of football Graeme Bennett in the Daily Record.
"We tried to get him last August but he wanted to stay and fight for his place in the team.
"We always said that if things changed we would take a look at it because Charlie Christie was very keen to take him on.
"But he is just one of a number of players the manager is looking at with a view to signing. We'll see what develops on that front over the coming weeks."
