Gillingham are hoping to win the race to land non-league scoring sensation Damien Reeves, Sky Sports understands.
The Gills have emerged as front-runners for the 26-year-old, who bagged over 40 goals for Altrincham in the Blue Square North.
Clubs from the Championship, SPL, League One and Two have been tracking Reeves.
Doncaster Rovers were thought to be favourites, but now Martin Allen's Gillingham have made their move.
Sky Sports understands Reeves is now closing on a deal with the Gills and should soon seal a move into the professional game.
