The Midlands club threw away automatic promotion last term, with the winning post in sight, and Jones is keen on bringing in some experience to ensure it does not happen again.
Denis Irwin, 36, has already moved to Molineux and tigerish midfielder Paul Ince, out-of-contract at Middlesbrough, is poised to join him before the new season, but Jones wants another old head up front in the form of Ferdinand.
The Tottenham Hotspur marksman has been dogged by injuries at White Hart Lane and at 36 Spurs may choose to cash in on the star who has hinted at retirement at the end of the current campaign.
Meanwhile, Spurs full Steve Carr has once again been linked with a switch to North London rivals Arsenal.
The Irish international, who was sidelined for most of last season, is a real favourite at White Hart Lane and the fans would be incensed should he join old boy Sol Campbell at Highbury.
