Moore is available on a free transfer after being released by Leeds United, with three clubs having offered the striker a deal.
Huddersfield Town have cooled an interest in the 30-year-old, while Chester are still trying to persuade the former Tranmere Rovers forward to drop down to League Two level.
"The door is still open for Ian Moore, the same as it was for Kevin Ellison," chairman Stephen Vaughan told the Evening Leader. "But Ian has one problem, he has played at a higher level all of his career.
"He has been offered three different contracts off three different clubs including Chester, and we may lose him."
League Two rivals Bury, meanwhile, have expressed an interest in signing Yeo, although Vaughan hopes the ex-Lincoln City man will stay.
He added: "I have not received any enquiry from a club. I have only spoken to the player's agent.
"We need someone like Simon to complement John Murphy - it is important to have proven centre-forwards in our squad."
Meanwhile, experienced midfielder Tony Grant will train with Chester during pre-season after being released by Accrington Stanley.
