The Tigers are concerned that fellow striker Ben Burgess may miss much of next season with a knee injury and have stepped up their search for a new marksman.
The Humberside outfit have already had a £250,000 bid turned down by Swindon Town for Sam Parkin on Wednesday and are now in the chase for the former Carlisle United, Mansfield Town and Manchester City player.
Peacock has received the offer of a new deal from The Robins, but chief executive Colin Sexstone has admitted that the striker's future is in his own hands.
New Ashton Gate player-manager Brian Tinnion fears Peacock may move on from the West Country club this summer.
"Lee is bound to get offers from other clubs and there is no guarantee he will be here next season," Tinnion told the Bristol Evening Post.
"We have already started the job of looking for a replacement if he does go, and it may be that we need someone else as well.
"It's no secret that lack of goals cost us last season and we need a recognised --goalscorer to get us the 20 or 25 we need to help get us up."
