Hearts are pondering a move to bring Lawrence Shankland back to Scotland.
The Beerschot star is on the wish list of summer targets for the Scottish Cup finalists.
Hearts manager Robbie Neilson is also keen to work with Shankland again after enjoying success with him previously at Dundee United.
Shankland scored 28 goals for Neilson’s side as he won his first Scotland call-up and helped send United back to the Premiership.
Shankland moved to Belgium last season but his move didn’t go as planned as he was played out of position and now his side have been relegated to the second tier.
Beerschot is reportedly looking to recoup the majority of the fee he paid Dundee United to snap up the 26-year-old in August.
Neilson and athletic director Joe Savage are looking to add in various areas of the Hearts team.
John Souttar is set to join Rangers for free this summer, while the loans of Taylor Moore, Ben Woodburn, Ellis Simms and Alex Cochrane also expire at the end of the season.
Hearts is already actively working on targets.
Wolves midfielder Connor Ronan is the one they want to do, but both Aberdeen and St Pauli are interested.
The Jambos have the added attraction of guaranteed European football until at least Christmas.
