Dons boss Derek McInnes has targeted Rangers keeper Cammy Bell in a loan deal as competition for Scott Brown.
McInnes needs to bring in a stopper to fill the gap left by the exit of Danny Ward, who was recalled early from a loan back to parent club Liverpool.
Aberdeen’s Republic of Ireland U21 keeper Danny Rogers is on loan at Falkirk until the end of the season.
McInnes is reluctant to take back Rogers, named Championship Player of the Month for December, just to sit on the bench.
Scotland international Bell has fallen to third in the pecking order at Ibrox and has not played for Rangers this season.
Bell’s last appearance was in the Premiership play-off loss to Motherwell last term.
The 29-year-old missed the first half of the season following knee surgery but is fit and returned to training last month.
Ibrox boss Mark Warburton recently confirmed he is willing to let the former Killie keeper go out on loan.
Dons boss McInnes has enquired about securing the 29-year-old and it is understood Bell is keen on the loan move.
However, McInnes revealed he has a number of options and will not make a rush move.
He said: “A few options have been put to us and we are considering various things.
“We will take time to assess the situation and see where we’re going to go.”
