Kilmarnock are planning a double swoop for Keith Lasley and David Fernandez.
Former Plymouth midfielder Lasley has been training with Killie for the last month as he looks for a new club.
Killie have opened talks with Lasley over a possible move to Rugby Park with Jim Jefferies having been impressed by the former Scotland Under-21 international in training.
"Keith has done well in his time with us. He's settled in well with the rest of the boys but picked up an injury, probably because he didn't have a full pre-season," Jefferies told the Daily Record.
"But he did well in the reserve match and now I'll have a chat with him about the football side of things.
"If we both like what we hear from each other, we'll discuss finance with his agent and take it from there.
"It's possible he could be signed for the weekend but even if he was, he hasn't enough games under his belt to be considered."
Jefferies is also hoping to bring in former Celtic man Fernandez.
Fernandez has found himself out of favour at Dundee United this season and Jefferies is keen to rescue him.
"He's still a United player, so I can't say too much," added Jefferies.
"But I've intimated an interest in talking to David when he has sorted his situation with Dundee United and I understand he is very keen to do that.
"His sort of striker is something we don't have - I'm happy with the lads I have got up front as they are excellent at running off defenders and into channels.
"But I would like someone who can hold the ball up and bring others into the game. That would be a useful option to have."
