Goodwillie spent the first half of this season on loan at former club Dundee United and he scored three times in 19 appearances in the Scottish Premiership, including a goal in a 4-0 win over St Johnstone in August.
Aberdeen and Oldham Athletic have also shown an interest in the 24-year-old, and Saints boss Wright is waiting to see if Goodwillie can be lured to McDiarmid Park.
Wright said in the Daily Record: "David is one we've enquired about so it will come down to whether we can get a deal that suits us, him and Blackburn.
"Other clubs with more financial clout are in for him but in football terms there isn't a better place to come than here.
"Joining us is a good opportunity to help anyone's career.
"David is one of a number of players on our minds but we are just one of several clubs interested in him. So it's really a waiting game now."
