Barnsley have been linked with a move for Bournemouth winger Connor Mahoney.
A potential loan deal is thought to be on the table for the highly-rated 20-year-old.
Reds boss Paul Heckingbottom is believed to have tried to sign the former Blackburn Rovers and Accrington Stanley player last season.
Mahoney has represented England at Under-17, U-18 and U-20 level but has yet to make his Premier League debut for the Cherries.
He did, however, start in a 2-2 home FA Cup clash with Wigan earlier this month before being substituted at half-time and featured for 64 minutes in a 3-0 loss in the away replay at the DW Stadium.
Nottingham Forest and Celtic have been linked with the player in the past.
