Stoke City and Hull City are battling to secure the services for former Everton and West Bromwich Albion forward Victor Anichebe, according to the Mail Online.
The Nigeria international is a free agent after leaving the Hawthorns at the end of last season, having spent three seasons with the Midlands outfit.
He made a total of sixty-one appearances for the Baggies, scoring nine times while he played one hundred and sixty-eight times for Everton, netting on twenty-six occasions.
He has been capped eleven times for the Super Eagles with his one and only international goal so far coming in a friendly against Kenya in March 2011.
He also took part in the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, scoring in a 2-1 win over Japan.
Stoke currently sit bottom of the Premier League with just one point while Hull have won two of their three matches so far and occupy fifth place.
