Portsmouth have almost reached an agreement with Udinese for Sulley Muntari according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Portsmouth boss, Harry Redknapp, insisted that the price tag on the powerhouse midfielder's head was far too high for the finances of the club.
Portsmouth were willing to pay £8 million for Muntari, while Udinese's asking price was £2 million higher.
Reports from Italy suggest that the Italian outfit have cut the price for the Ghanaian international, and are now asking £8.5 million for the player.
It is believed that with such a little gap between asking price and offer, the two clubs will find an arrangement within the end of the month.
