Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler is to hold talks with North Queensland coach Ian Ferguson over a move the Australian club.
Fowler, who held similar talks with Sydney FC two seasons ago, is a free agent after being released by Premier League side Blackburn last month.
Fury coach Ferguson is confident the Anfield legend is interested in a move to the A-League outfit.
"He has agreed to catch up in Townsville for a few days and obviously we will be talking about football,'' Ferguson said.
"We're looking for a marquee player and Robbie easily fits that position in any A-League football club.
"His record speaks for itself. He's a pure goal scorer who would lift the profile of football in this country to a new level if he decided to play in the A-League.''
Fowler scored 183 goals in 369 games for Liverpool in two spells at the club and also played for Leeds, Manchester City and Cardiff.
