The Reds are currently trying to bolster the squad that made it to both the Asian Champions League and A-League finals last season and a quality striker is on the agenda.
It is believed that the 29-year old will be released by the Rams next month and the Reds could be set to pounce.
Adelaide assistant Phil Stubbins was recently in the UK on a scouting mission and said he had an extensive list of potential targets.
“Obviously coming back from the UK I’ve got quite a lengthy list (of players),” Stubbins said.
“But we’ve got 10 to 15 on the list. And we’ve got to ask ‘can they do a job for you? Can we meet their demands?’”
