Portsmouth will not allow Kevin-Prince Boateng and Nadir Belhadj to leave 'on the cheap' as administrator Andrew Andronikou has reportedly travelled to Italy to broker deals.
Lazio have shown interest in Boateng and Belhadj, with both players expected to leave former Premier League club Portsmouth.
Andronikou is keen to agree deals in a bid to raise money for Portsmouth, who are under a Company Voluntary Agreement, but has grown frustrated with dealing with agents.
He is therefore reported to have flown to Italy in order to deal directly with clubs in the summer transfer market.
Andronikou said in the Daily Express: "We've been listening to the tittle tattle and waiting to hear from clubs.
"I have been sick to death of dealing with agents.
"We want clubs to come through with the offers and not have to deal with these agents. We are not going to let them go on the cheap."
