AFC Bournemouth have been linked with two former Cherries midfielders with Groves admitting that both Huddersfield's Anton Robinson and retired Richard Hughes 'fit the bill'.
Former Weymouth captain, Anton Robinson joined the Cherries on transfer deadline day in February 2009. Signed by manager Eddie Howe the combative midfielder made his debut against Shrewsbury in the unfamiliar role of right back and immediately impressed.
In his more usual role of central midfield Robinson impressed and became another Dean Court favourite.
Robinson left the Cherries in August 2011 for an undisclosed fee, signing a three year deal with Huddersfield, but failed to really establish himself in the squad as they won promotion to the Championship via the play-offs.
Richard Hughes, who is now 33, retired from football a year ago after leaving Portsmouth.
Hughes joined Pompey in 2002 after four years at Dean Court, the Scottish midfielder made over 150 appearances for the Cherries before spending the next 9 years at Fratton Park.
Groves told the Daily Echo...
"They are both players we are more than aware of and players who have got good pedigree so, if something were to materialise, then certainly we would look at it.
"I know Richard very well. He has played at the highest level and, as a holding midfield player, fits the bill. Anton is somebody that people know. They are both decent players in their own right...'
'...You are constantly looking to strengthen areas that you feel maybe you could improve. I think you look at everything when you go through the squad."
