Fulham have had a £2 million bid for Leicester City defender Liam Moore rejected, according to Sky Sports.
The Cottagers are the first team to submit a concrete bid for the defender following speculation that numerous Premier League clubs are interested.
Aston Villa, Swansea, Newcastle and Fulham are the names that have surfaced in the race to sign the 20-year-old but they will have to bid higher than £2 million if they want to acquire his services.
The England U21 international has made 25 appearances for the club this season and scored a rare goal, he only has 18 months left on his contract but Leicester are aware of the right-back's potential and are not going to let him go cheap, especially if they are promoted this season and meet him in the Premier League.
Leicester are currently four points clear at the top of the Championship and have promotion at the front of their minds. they also feel that they will be benefited more by keeping the defender - rather than selling him.
