Maria Sharapova will reportedly be offered a wildcard into next month's Aegon Classic in Birmingham.
The event, which the Russian won in 2004 & 2005, is a warm-up for the Wimbledon Open but she has not played in it since reaching the final in 2010.
The BBC say that preliminary discussions between the 30-year-old's team and the Lawn Tennis Association are underway.
Sharapova has recently completed a 15-month drugs ban after testing positive for meldonium and has been handed entries to several tournaments since her return.
It has drawn criticism from the likes of British pair Andy Murray and Heather Watson, who have both said that a player returning from a ban should have to work their way back up the rankings instead of receiving wildcards.
Canada's Eugenie Bouchard called Sharapova a "cheater" and admitted after beating the Russian in the Madrid Open last night that she drew inspiration from "a lot of players" privately wishing her luck in the match.
