The striker is available on a free transfer after spending the second half of last season with German club Mainz.
He has now travelled to Scotland to negotiate a move to Inverness and appears keen on signing for Charlie Christie's side.
"I've been offered a very big opportunity by Inverness," Niculae told the Daily Record. "It is a big deal.
"I'm hoping to get the chance to play well and score a lot of goals in the Scottish league.
"If I can do that, maybe I can move on to a bigger stage in the country or England."
Director of football Graeme Bennett feels it would be a 'major coup', if Inverness persuade Niculae to accept a move to the SPL.
Bennett said: "Signing Niculae would be a major coup for us. He is a very high-profile player and his CV is right from the top drawer.
"It would be wrong to go overboard at this stage because there is still some things to sort out.
"Even if we could get him over here for a year, it would be terrific for the club."
