The Belgian attacker has already attracted attention from Sheffield Wednesday and Cercle Brugge, but could end up plying his trade in Scotland after Terrors boss Ian McCall attempted to set up a trial at Tannadice.
After failing to hold down a place with the runaway Jupiler League leaders, the 25-year-old is known to be looking to move on.
The Dendermonde-born ace can list the likes of Lokeren and Tromso on his footballing CV, and will be awaiting developments from Club Brugge.
His current club rejected Dundee United's initial request to take him on trial, but McCall is expected to try again in the future.
However, the Taysiders have already snapped up a new attacking force this week in the form of midfield man Russell Latapy.
Meanwhile, promising defender Mark Wilson is set to sign a three-and-a-half-year contract at the club.
The youngster had been expected to pen a new deal on Friday, however it has been delayed due to him seeing a knee specialist.
Another player being linked with a move to Tannadice is Partick Thistle`s experienced defender Scott Paterson, with reports saying a summer bid could be in the pipeline.
