HITC Sport understands Ipswich are lining up move for free agent James Collins.
Collins is a free agent after surprisingly leaving West Ham earlier this summer when his contract expired.
Former Wales international Collins has spent 10 years at West Ham during two spells at the club, making over 200 appearances for the Hammers. Collins joined West Ham from Cardiff in 2005 and was sold to Aston Villa four years later before returning in 2012.
Collins has been training with West Ham to maintain his fitness as he looks to find a new club.
A number of sides have shown an interest in Collins, and now Ipswich are ready to offer the 35-year-old a chance to move to Portman Road.
Ipswich boss Paul Hurst is keen to add some experience to his young squad after a difficult start to life at the Championship club
Ipswich are rock bottom of the Championship having failed to win any of their opening five games, and Hurst sees Collins' experience and leadership qualities as being a valuable addition to his squad.
