Lincoln chairman Steff Wright is hoping that the Imps can agree to sell winger Dany N'Guessan.
The 21-year-old rejected a new contract at Sincil Bank last week and has held talks with Leicester over a potential move, although other clubs are also interested.
Wright told BBC Radio Lincolnshire: "It is far better if we can agree a figure with the club. Dany is a player of great potential who has developed a lot in the last year."
Due to the player's age Lincoln will be entitled to compensation when the out-of-contract Frenchman finds a new club.
And if a price is not agreed for N'Guessan the fee will be decided at a Football League tribunal.
Wright added: "As an attacking player you could value Dany higher than Jack Hobbs who recently moved to Leicester, there is no doubt about that, at just 21, Dany is a very valuable player."
