The Bundesliga outfit are on the lookout for goalkeeping cover following an injury to Martin Pieckenhagen and have turned their attentions to Moens.
Pieckenhagen is facing six months on the sidelines after picking up an injury against Kaiserslautern, and HSV coach Klaus Toppmoller is desperate to bring in cover.
Toppmoller was eager to raid his former club Bayer Leverkusen and sign Tom Starke, but was told a deal could not be concluded until the transfer window reopens in January - prompting him to look elsewhere.
Hamburg's scouting network has highlighted Moens as a likely candidate, as his profile of being immediately available fits the bill.
The 30-year-old can sign for any club immediately, after severing his ties with AZ Alkmaar, and will be put through his paces before a decision is made.
Moens is desperate to make a top flight return, having recently had a trial with Tottenham.
Spurs caretaker boss David Pleat was impressed with Moens during his trial in North London, but was reluctant to offer him a deal as he had been out of action for some time.
It would appear Spurs could miss the boat as HSV have stepped in and may well offer Moens the chance to resurrect his career in Die Bundesliga.
