WREXHAM boss Denis Smith wants Singapore international Dan Bennett to bolster his side to battle against relegation.
The 24-year-old triallist impressed on his Dragons' debut in the reserves on Monday night.
Now Smith is weighing up his options with a view to signing the versatile Bennett, if funding can be found.
Smith said: "He played at centre-back last night but he can play in several positions. That's his strength if we're looking to next season.
"I've been speaking to Dan today, but he might be gone by the weekend."
Any move for Bennett will be funded by the Wrexham Independent Supporters group (WINS). They are raising money to bankroll Smith in the transfer market. The fans' initiative has collected £2,000 so far plus the promise of a £4,000 loan from an individual.
Smith has brought in three players since arriving at the cash-strapped club earlier in the season - but if he pursues his interest in Bennett it will be the first signing by fans.
Bennett played against Liverpool in a preseason match last year and spent part of this season at Swindon while Roy Evans was manager.
The player wants to sort out his future in the next few weeks before deciding whether to take up an offer with a club in Singapore.
Smith added: "There won't be a fee for Dan, which is a crucial factor because we haven't got any money here. I have spoken to him about the ground work."
Meanwhile Paul Barrett faces up to four weeks on the sidelines after pulling a hamstring in the reserves' 4-2 win at home to Stoke.
