Laws is desperate to bolster his forward line before the Championship begins on Saturday and is cautiously optimistic about his chances.
Laws said: "We are working feverishly behind the scenes to make that happen.
"We are in the process of talking to a player. We have already spoken to a football club and it is now about talking to the player, which I am going to do early part of next week.
"Hopefully, we can secure something which will give everybody a lift."
