Sky Sports understands Wigan are poised to sign former West Brom striker Marc-Antoine Fortune.
Fortune, 32, is available on a free transfer after seeing out his contract at the Hawthorns earlier this summer.
Wigan boss Owen Coyle has been busy in the transfer market in the last few weeks and he is close to making Fortune his latest signing at the DW Stadium.
Fortune is understood to have agreed terms on a two-year deal and passed a medical with the Championship side.
The Frenchman scored two goals in 23 appearances for West Brom last season, but Coyle sees him as an ideal replacement for Everton and Newcastle target Arouna Kone.
