Jordan Nuttell will decide on Thursday over an offer to join Spalding United.
The Boston Town youngster – who has also attracted interest from King’s Lynn Town – is free to speak to Tulips boss Pat Rayment who made an official seven-day approach.
Rayment says Nuttell fits the bill as a “young and hungry” player.
He added: “Jordan has been on our radar for a few months and we’ve watched his progress.
“He’s the sort of player who fits the profile of what we want here.
“We are looking for more hunger and when we signed Luke Thurlbourne he gave us that extra spark.
“Jordan wants to play up front but he also brings the benefit of being able to play in other positions depending on injuries and suspensions.”
Spalding had been hoping to add Nuttell to the squad for Tuesday night’s home game against third-placed Gresley in the Evo-Stik League First Division South but he is set to reveal his decision on Thursday.
Rayment, meanwhile, is looking for his side to bounce back from Saturday’s dramatic 4-3 defeat at Sheffield when Spalding came close to a late fightback from 4-1 down.
He added: “Individual errors cost us the game. They were uncharacteristic mistakes by players who we can usually depend on and that’s something you can’t legislate for.
“The concentration levels need to be better.
“Sheffield’s manager told me that they wouldn’t be gifted four easier goals this season.
“We were poor from that point of view but overall the performance was pleasing.
“We passed the ball really well and if the game had gone on for another five minutes then we probably would have won it!
“But we’ve got to cut out those individual errors. We have got a little bit more work to do and if we can bring in a couple of players then the squad will be stronger.”
