The Bristol City striker has been on loan with their cross-town rivals since January, having fallen out of favour with Danny Wilson's side.
The former Leeds United hit-man spent a prior loan spell at Darlington before coming to The Memorial Stadium and Matthews is unlikely to receive a fresh contract with the Ashton Gate club in the summer.
The tall striker thinks he still has the quality to play in Division Two but the idea of a permanent switch across the Bristol divide would appeal to him.
"After all my injury problems, I'm starting to feel strong again," Matthews told Bristol Rovers' official website.
"I won't hide the fact that I'd love to play in the Second Division again, because I've played there for City and feel I could do a job at that level, but I've really enjoyed my time here and I'd seriously think about it if Rovers offered me the chance to stay here."
