Peterborough United director of football Barry Fry says they have agreed a fee with Ipswich for on-loan Rotherham striker Kieffer Moore.
The 25-year-old has 13 League One goals this season, with only Posh forward Jack Marriott scoring more this term.
Fry told BBC Radio Suffolk there is a discrepancy over how any potential fee would be paid, but is hopeful of getting the deal done.
Ipswich say they will not comment on any potential transfers.
Moore joined Rotherham on a season-long loan in July and has not started a Championship game for the Tractor Boys since signing for them from Forest Green in January 2017.
Meanwhile, Peterborough have extended the loan of Reading goalkeeper Jonathan Bond until the end of the season.
The 24-year-old initially signed in June and has made 27 appearances for Grant McCann’s side.
“I always wanted to stay, I made that clear and I am really pleased that it is done,” Bond told the club website.
