The forward is a free agent after leaving Reading in May and saw his stock rise thanks to two goals on Wales’ run to the semi-finals in France, including a goal-of-the-tournament contender against Belgium.

And it is understood Hull have offered Robson-Kanu assurances about first-team football and a guarantee he will be picked in his preferred position of striker.

Two other Premier League clubs, one of them believed to be Swansea, have shown an interest in the 27-year-old, but neither has yet made a firm offer.

Robson-Kanu was on Arsenal’s books as a youngster but was released and instead joined Reading, where he made more than 200 appearances in nine years and helped the club win promotion in 2012.

He made 25 Premier League appearances the following season, scoring seven times, and left the Madejski Stadium in May after running down his deal.
