Leicester City have rejected a bid from Liverpool for full-back Ben Chilwell.
This has been reported by the Liverpool Echo, who claim that the Merseyside outfit have made an offer of £5m plus £2m in add-ons for the highly-rated teenager.
Chilwell, 19, is recognised as one of the most exciting young left-backs in England, but it remains to be seen as to whether he will complete a move to Anfield before the start of the 2016/17 campaign.

Despite his fine rise at the King Power Stadium, the energetic defender failed to make a Premier League appearance for Claudio Ranieri's side last term.
If a move to Liverpool does materialise, it appears that he will be set to battle it out with Spaniard Alberto Moreno for the left-back role.
Moreno endured a tricky campaign under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp last season and was heavily criticised following his below-par performance in the Europa League final.
But will Liverpool secure the signature of Chilwell?
Well, it appears that there's a very good chance they will but must up their bid over the coming weeks.
Indeed, the same report from the Echo claims that the Premier League champions rate the teenager at £10m and won't sell for any less. It's now up to Liverpool to respond following the initial rejection.
