AZ lured coach Co Adriaanse from Willem II, appointed Martin van Geel as their technical director and signed the Tilburg club's skipper Denny Landzaat recently.
It would appear AZ are intent on making more signings, with Mathijsen and Jaliens high on their wish list.
The pair are almost certain to leave Willem II in the summer, with their contracts due to expire at the conclusion of the campaign.
The two defenders are unlikely to be short of offers, with French side Lille having already expressed interest in Jaliens.
Jaliens has insisted he would prefer to stay on home soil before trying his luck elsewhere, which could well tip the balance in favour of AZ who are looking to agree deals in the near future.
"We have an interest and hope agreements can be sorted soon," club spokesman Willem Zeijlmans told VI.nl
