Northampton manager John Gorman is giving a trial to former Oxford United striker Craig Davies.
The Wales international, 20, moved to Verona last season but is looking for a loan deal back to England with the possibility of a permanent transfer.
Gorman told the club website: "We need to add strikers to our squad.
"Craig has done well in training and is a player who could do well for us. He has a lot of potential and he was being closely watched when he was at Oxford."
