Willem II are contemplating handing a deal to striker Ali Elkhattabi.
The Moroccan is available on a free transfer, having moved on from RBC Roosendaal at the end of last term.
He failed to find a club during the transfer window, but he can still secure a move due to his free transfer status and Willem II are ready to turn to the forward to ease their travails.
Iwan Redan and Mounir El Hamdaoui are currently sidelined through injury and Elkhattabi could be handed a contract this week.
The 29-year-old has already rejected an offer from Eredivisie rivals NAC Breda this summer, but the striker is still open to continuing his playing career.
"I am absolutely open to a club," Elkhattabi told Voetbal International.
"If I receive a good offer, I would not have any problems to carry on for a few more years."
The Tilburg-based club are in need to boosting their attack, as Willem II captain Redan needed an exploratory operation to clear up a long-standing knee problem.
Fellow striker El Hamdaoui is already facing the rest of the season on the sidelines after tearing his cruciate knee ligament, but Anour Hadouir's knee problem is not as bad as first feared and he will be out for up to three weeks.
