George Borg, manager of Nationwide South club Braintree Town, is reportedly closing in on the signing of two unnamed players.
Warren McBean and Stephen Hughes both joined League One side Brighton in the summer and the Iron boss has money available to strengthen his squad.
He has been in talks with a highly-rated striker and all that he is willing to say is that the player is both in-form and highly-sought after.
"He's scoring lots of goals and he's had a lot of offers from other clubs," Borg told braintreeandwithamtimes.co.uk.
"He's very quick and lively and he's also a very loyal player and I like that in him.
"We're not going to rush into anything but we've already had two discussions and I'm hoping to tie something up early next week."
Braintree are also in the running to sign a former fans' favourite, although Borg again was reluctant to name the player.
