Icelandic international Gudjonsson, who is deadly from long range, is set to line up alongside former Nottingham Forest midfielder Chris Bart-Williams on Tuesday.
The Real Betis star, who spent last season on loan at Wolves, also has experience in England having spent five months with Aston Villa in 2003.
Chelsea keeper Neil Sullivan has also linked up with the squad, but is unable to play in the contest as he still has 12 months remaining on his Blues contract.
With Jose Mourinho having a wealth of keepers at his disposal it is believed the Stamford Bridge outfit are prepared to release him early from his deal.
Blackwell is desperate to bring in cover for Scott Carson as he is the only recognised keeper on the club's books, while Rami Shaaban impressed on trial last week.
"I'm still looking at goalkeepers and I'm hoping we can do something sooner rather than later," said Blackwell to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
"That's no slight on Scott because he has done magnificently well for us, but I still feel we need some experience around him.
"Neil has joined us for a few days and we'll see how things go.
"I know all about his capabilities as a goalkeeper - he is vastly experienced and is a good man to have around the place - but I just want to see how he goes in training."
Blackwell is keen for the players to impress in the friendlies as he does not have much time to make a decision on their futures before the start of the season on August 7.
"We've got to use these games as opportunities to look at players," he added. "We've still not got the squad quite as we want it.
"I'm going to try and bring players in on this basis and see if they fit the bill. A lot of the Bosmans have now gone, but we might just unearth something."
