Jason Scotland's agent expects the Swansea City striker to sign for Wigan Athletic rather than Hull City.
The Latics have confirmed they have lodged an offer for Scotland, with former Swans boss Roberto Martinez keen to link back up with the forward at the JJB Stadium.
Premier League rivals Hull are said to have joined the race to sign the Trinidad and Tobago international, who netted 24 goals last season.
But 30-year-old Scotland is poised to join Wigan, according to his representative Mike Berry.
"I spoke to Brian Horton and he asked me what the bottom-line price would be for Jason," Berry told the Hull Daily Mail.
"I said I thought a fee of £2million would probably be enough to get him in.
"My belief was that he'd be ideal for Hull, but I expect the Wigan deal to go ahead now."
