Reports in Holland have suggested that Roda board member Nol Hendriks watched the 23-year-old (pictured) play for his Norwegian club Odd Grenland recently.
The Brossard, Quebec native is thought to want a move to a bigger European club, having established himself as a regular member of Frank Yallop's Canada squad in recent times.
Roda are keen to find a replacement for the departed Arouna Kone, who has joined PSV Eindhoven, and have targeted Occean as a possible option.
The Eredivisie outfit have also been linked with a number of other strikers in the lead-up to Wednesday's transfer deadline, with Swede Darko Lukanovic, Tunisian Ali Zitouni and Argentine Nicolas Frutos all being mooted as targets for the Limburgers as well.
Another target in Hungarian Roland Juhasz has opted for a move to Belgian giants Anderlecht, so it remains to be seen if the Dutch club can bring in a new striker before the end of the month.
