The Daily Express says Behrami's family have also struggled to settle and he is understood to be keen to get back to Italy under former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri. AS Roma are understood to be in advanced talks, with all parties confident a deal will be concluded soon.
The sale will free up funds for manager Avram Grant, who remains in the market for a left-back and a striker. But his plan to snap up Aston Villa midfielder Steve Sidwell looks set to be tied up this weekend.
Behrami might not be the last out of the door as Grant streamlines his squad for the relegation battle ahead.
