Anthony Pilkington played under the current Ipswich Town manager Paul Lambert at their local rivals Norwich City.
And with his current contract at Championship side Wigan Athletic scheduled to expire at the end of this month it is understood he could he reunite with his former manager at Portman Road.
Pilkington, who is 32 years old, and is set to become a free agent as things stand, will have to weigh up his options over the summer.
The goal scoring winger arguably fits the bill for Ipswich. He is experienced, proven in League One and would add more depth and options to their attacking department for next season.
The question is could the Tractor Boys’ faithful welcome him with open arms despite his Norwich connection?
Pilkington was signed by Lambert for Norwich in the summer of 2011 and went onto make 82 appearances, scoring 15 goals in all competitions, including playing a key part in Norwich's unexpected Premiership win away at Manchester United.
