The Clarets are rumoured to be interested in bringing stiker, Marlon Harewood, who will be 32 in August to Turf Moor.
If the speculation is true though, they could face competition from Championship rivals, Millwall and League 1 Notts County.
Harewood was released by Blackpool at the end of last season and will now be available on a free transfer. He signed for newly promoted, Blackpool in early August 2010 agreeing a two year permanent deal later that month.
During his career, Harewood has also played for Nottingham Forest, West Ham and Aston Villa as well as a host of clubs on loan.
Blackpool gaffer, Ian Holloway also allowed Harewood to join Barnsley on loan in February 2011, until the end of the 2010-11 season and it was clear he did not seem to feature in his plans.
Notts County seem to have been the quickest off the mark and are understood to have tabled a two-year deal for Harewood.
Harewood's agent, Phil Sproson confirmed recently that a couple of second-tier clubs have made offers for the striker.
'Marlon has spoken to Notts County after they made their interest known in him,' Sproson told skysports.com.
'However, he also has had two offers from two Championship clubs who are offering him two-year deals.
'A number of other sides are also keen on Marlon and he is keeping his options open.
'We will consider all offers that come our way and hopefully Marlon will have his future resolved soon.'
It is also reported in the media that Burnley too may well have offered the experienced forward a two year deal. On average he scores a goal in about every three games so there is no doubting his goal-scoring skills but once again will his age count against him bearing in mind Eddie Howe's intention to reduce the average age of the squad?
