Scotland international Berra is available on a free transfer after leaving Wolves earlier this summer.
Rangers and a number of Championship clubs have expressed an interest in signing Berra, but Ipswich are leading the race for the former Hearts man.
Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy is a big fan of the central defender having signed him during his time in charge of Wolves.
The 28-year-old is thought to be keen on a move to be reunited with McCarthy and talks are thought to be at an advanced stage with the Portman Road outfit.
