West Ham United are hoping to take former Sheffield United forward Colin Kazim-Richards and Southend United defender Bilel Mohsni on the club's pre-season trip to Germany.
Kazim-Richards, who is currently on the books of Galatasaray after a loan spell at Olympiakos last season, and Mohsni have been training with the Hammers for the last few days.
Turkey international Kazim-Richards played the first half of the 2-1 friendly win over Colchester United on Saturday, while the versatile Mohsni appeared in the second period.
The pair will be given another opportunity to impress after assistant manager Neil McDonald confirmed the players are set to travel to Germany.
"Colin did all right," McDonald told the club's official website. "He's been training with us for a few days and he's going to come with us to Germany, so we'll have a good look at him there.
"Our first impressions are that he's not too bad.
"Bilel has been in for a couple of days as well and I think he's going to come to Germany as well.
"We're having a good look at players to try to complement the squad and boost it up, so we will see how that goes."
The Hammers are scheduled to play Rot-Weiss Erfurt, Dynamo Dresden and Energie Cottbus during next week's trip to Germany.
