Primera Liga outfit Malaga are reported to be interested in former Celtic striker Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink.
The Spaniards are keen to add some experience to their frontline for the new season and regard the Dutchman as an ideal candidate.
Initial contact is said to have already been made, with positive talks held regarding a potential deal.
Vennegoor is available as a free agent after seeing his contract at Celtic expire at the end of last season.
He had been linked with a move to Bristol City, but Robins boss Gary Johnson has distanced the Championship club from such rumours.
Malaga are aware that the striker may be out of their price range, as they continue to work on a stringent budget, but they remain optimistic that a compromise can be reached.
Should they fail in their efforts to land the experienced frontman, speculation continues to suggest that they will turn their attention to former Newcastle and Portsmouth forward Lomana LuaLua - who is currently plying his trade in Qatar.
