The Dutch international`s agent Rob Jansen recently confirmed that the player was happy in Lisbon, but the Eredivisie club have stated that they are still working on luring the forward to De Kuip.
Feyenoord coach Bert van Marwijk said: "We are still working on it behind the scenes."
A stumbling block to the transfer is that the Rotterdam club may lack the financial resource to fund the transfer, but they are determined to reinforce their front-line.
The future of David Connolly is still in doubt as he has yet to agree a new contract, and van Hooijdonk would be an ideal replacement should the Irishman not extend his stay in Rotterdam.
