Tranmere boss Les Parry is hoping to sign West Brom striker Kayleden Brown on loan ahead of the trip to Walsall in the first round of the Carling Cup.
Parry is keen to bolster his strikeforce after Rovers' disappointing 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Oldham in Saturday's npower League One opener.
However, Brown is unlikely to arrive until later in the week, while Parry has also been in talks with former Tranmere forward Eugene Dadi and another unidentified striker.
Parry has no new injury concerns and said he expects skipper Ian Thomas-Moore to fight for the cause despite him handing in a transfer request last week.
