The 22-year-old is seeking a permanent deal with a new club and has been playing on non-contract terms presently with the Meadow Lane outfit.
Magpies boss Billy Dearden has already offered Murray a permanent deal to stay with the Second Division club but Harriers director of football Jan Molby is hopeful he can lure the player back to Aggborough, where Murray had a previous loan spell.
Dearden is hoping he can win the chase for the troubled youngster, who was recently treated for an alcohol-related illness.
"With regards to Adam Murray becoming a permanent player for the team, I have offered him a contract and I am waiting for his agent to get back to me," Dearden told the club's official website.
"Adam has done very well since he arrived here. He has been training with us and he is fit, but not match fit."
Despite Notts County's hopes of landing Murray, the midfielder's agent Gino Culbertson revealed that the next '48 hours' should tell where the player's future will lie.
"Notts County boss Billy Dearden will be talking to the Notts County board today in an effort to get Adam the contract he wants and Jan Molby at Kidderminster is aware of the situation too," said Culbertson.
"Rather than a six-month contract to the end of the season, we're looking for an 18-month contract, so Adam can have some stability and whoever signs him will be getting one heck of a player.
"I would hope we'll be making significant moves forward very soon and that the situation will be finalised within the next 48 hours, before the Christmas programme."
