And, it has been claimed that the two clubs have both identified Mansfield Town centre-back Krystian Pearce as a target ahead of the new season.

Pearce is the skipper for the Stags and has been a mainstay in their side since joining from Torquay United in 2015, so they will be determined to hold on to him. But, Lincoln and Salford are ready to try and take the 29-year-old away from Mansfield this summer with one year remaining on his contract at Field Mill.
