Philips Stadion boss Guus Hiddink is eager to bring in fresh defensive cover following the departures of Wilfred Bouma and Lee Young-pyo, and has been impressed with Filipovic.
Hiddink's need for cover was heightened at the weekend when new recruits Michael Ball and Michael Reiziger picked up long-term injuries.
Dutch clubs are allowed to complete two domestic transfers outside of the window and a move for Filipovic could be in the offing.
PSV have proposed a loan deal and Roda's board are ready to cooperate.
However, Roda coach Huub Stevens is still smarting at losing Arouna Kone to PSV and is not keen to deal with the Eindhoven club.
However, with Filipovic not currently in the team, a loan move for the 30-year-old Serb could be pushed through in the near future.
