Hull have joined the chase for Liverpool's out-of-favour winger Jermaine Pennant.
Wigan, Tottenham and Stoke have all been linked to the 25-year-old, who has failed to impress in two-and-a-half years at Anfield, and now Hull have revealed their interest.
Manager Phil Brown said: "I would be very interested in Jermaine Pennant if he was available at the right price. We will be making enquiries."
A move for Pennant this month would come 10 years after Arsenal made headlines by paying Notts County £2million for the then 15-year-old.
He failed to fulfil his potential with the Gunners and later joined Birmingham before his £6.7million switch to Liverpool.
Hull are looking to strengthen during the transfer window to consolidate their position in the top half of the Barclays Premier League.
The Tigers have also been linked with Wigan midfielder Michael Brown but Phil Brown has denied making an approach.
He said: "We have got a number of irons in the fire, but just because the transfer window opens, doesn't mean to say everyone jumps into business straight away.
"A lot of these windows start with the big boys, and once they start to do their dealings everyone else follows suit. We have got certain targets earmarked."
