The Tigers have reportedly had the Hungary international training with them at Cottingham.
A number of Hull City fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the rumours that free agent Norbert Balogh has been training with the Tigers, hinting at a potential move.
The Hull Daily Mail reported on Wednesday that the 23-year-old, twice capped for Hungary's senior team, linked up with Grant McCann's side at their Cottingham training ground.
Balogh, who stands 6ft 5in, spent last season on loan with APOEL Nicosia out in Cyprus, playing his part in their Cypriot first division title win, but was released by Palermo upon his return.
Hull raised some eyebrows amongst fans after McCann sanctioned the departure of striker Nouha Dicko on loan to Dutch Eredivisie outfit Vitesse Arnhem, with the Tigers struggling in front of goal, save for the consistent Jarrod Bowen.
Though Balogh's goalscoring record could hardly be described as prolific - nine goals and eight assists in 77 senior club games according to Transfermarkt - he is young, tall, versatile and clearly must have talent for him to be capped for his nation not once but twice.
Here is what some Hull fans on social media made of the speculation:

He's not the goal scorer we're searching. He's similar to Eaves, he's tall 1m 97 cm so it's a duplicate. He has scored 0 goals in Serie B but in Serie B Puscas was really rubbish so who knows, maybe he turns out to be a cracking signing.— HullCityItaly (@HullCityItalian) 10 September 2019
Wow! Another Proschwitz.— Ginger_life78 hcafc (@asa_medforth) 10 September 2019
With numbers like that he's to good for us— James Parker (@JamesParker96) 11 September 2019
Prolific— Wayne Hollingsworth (@hullwayne) 11 September 2019
So he played 22 times for Palermo and scored 0 goals.— Ian Staples (@IanStaples4) 11 September 2019
Are you sure he’s a striker??
Up next for Hull is their Championship clash with Wigan Athletic at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday.
