Crystal Palace look like winning the race to sign out-of-contract Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray.
The Seagulls have offered their top scorer a new deal after his 22 goals helped fire them to the League One title.
But Palace and Millwall are also interested in Murray and Brighton boss Gus Poyet fears his side are being priced out of the battle to win his signature with the Eagles in pole position.
"We are getting close to a final decision," Poyet told the Argus.
"They are offering plenty of money and we cannot compete with that, so it's difficult."
