Sunderland target Louis Saha says he is open to a move to the club.
The 33-year-old is a free agent following the conclusion of his short-term contract at Tottenham and he has already been linked with West Ham.
But Sunderland are also known to want a striker, especially with Nicklas Bendtner's loan from Arsenal having come to an end in May, and in January they targeted Bolton's Kevin Davies.
Saha's track record with injuries made some question the former Manchester United and Fulham player's move to Tottenham.
But Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill is reported to be keen and Saha is himself not ruling out a switch to Wearside, as he said: "I would consider going to Sunderland.
"Anything can happen in the transfer market, though, it's always a tense time.
"It's all about making the right choices and the nice thing is to have options."
Saha's time at Tottenham ended in less than glowing fashion after he was criticised by Tottenham fans for using his Twitter account to congratulate Chelsea on winning the UEFA Champions League.
The Stamford Bridge club's success meant Spurs failed to qualify for next season's competition despite finishing fourth in the 2011/12 Premier League.
