Sunderland are one of a number of clubs monitoring John Aloisi's situation.
Sources in Australia claim that Sunderland are one of a number of clubs monitoring John Aloisi's situation at Osasuna.
The Spanish club have offered the Australian attacker a new contract after his proposed move to Panathinaikos collapsed, amid claims from the Athens outfit he failed a medical in Greece.
Consequently, the 29-year-old's future is up in the air and Portsmouth have already enquired about the possibility of re-signing their former forward.
However, it is understood that Sunderland could also offer Aloisi another option in The Premiership as Mick McCarthy continues his search for a new striker.
Le Mans have also been alerted by the Osasuna hit-man's possible availability and he is not short of offers as he ponders his next move.
Reports emanating from Pamplona are indicating that the player is tempted to remain at Osasuna, on a two-year contract, but the fact that the player is a free agent means a move to England cannot be discounted.
