However, it is currently looking unlikely that the Tigers will be able to strike an agreement with the winger when the window opens later this week.
A report from Turkish news outlet Haber 7 earlier this month suggested that Hull were targeting a move for Nwakaeme.
The 33-year-old is currently on course to become a free-agent at the end of June as he has yet to agree fresh terms with Trabzonspor.
Nwakaeme helped Trabzonspor win the Super Lig title by producing a host of eye-catching attacking displays in this division last season.
The Nigerian also represented Trabzonspor in the Europa League and the Turkish Cup.
Hull will be looking to push forward as a club next season after consolidating a place in the Championship during the previous campaign.
Having already been linked with a plethora of players, it will be interesting to see whether the Tigers opt to engage in a great deal of transfer activity over the coming months.

With this latest report casting doubt over Hull’s chances of securing a move for Nwakaeme, manager Shota Arveladze may need to switch his attention to other targets.
It could be argued that signing the winger would be somewhat of a risk given that he has never played in the Championship during his career.
Keeping this in mind, the Tigers may find it more beneficial to sign players who have a proven track-record of delivering the goods at this level during the upcoming window.
By assembling a strong squad between now and the start of the 2022/23 campaign, Arveladze may be able to lead his side to a relative amount of success in the Championship later this year.
