Skysports.com understands Doncaster are poised to sign strike duo Habib Bamogo and Mamadou Bagayoko when the transfer window opens.
Rovers boss Dean Saunders is keen to bolster his attacking options after seeing Marc-Antoine Fortune recalled by West Brom from his loan spell at the Keepmoat Stadium.
Former Marseille striker Bamogo and ex-Nice forward Bagayoko are both currently plying their trade in Greece, but are ready to join Rovers in January.
Agent Willie McKay, who has brokered the deals, believes the pair will be a major success in England and he admits they have impressed Saunders in training.
"Both players trained yesterday and Dean was very impressed," McKay told skysports.com.
"Bamogo is a top player and I have been trying to get him over to the UK for some time.
"He is quick and strong and I believe he will prove to be one of the best players in the Championship when he arrives.
"Unfortunately we lost Marc-Antoine Fortune after he was recalled by West Brom, but Mamadou has the same attributes as Marc and I believe both players could prove a real difference for the side.
"They have both scored lots of goals in France and I am sure they will do the same in England and I'm sure Premier League clubs will be interested."
