Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly had a £25m bid turned down for Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon.
The 17-year-old left-back - who grabbed a last-gasp equaliser for the Cottagers against Burton Albion last season - had previously been the subject of interest from Spurs' Premier League rivals Liverpool.
But the Telegraph are now reporting that Mauricio Pochettino's side have offered £25m to bring the England under-19s star to White Hart Lane - but have been knocked back.
Sessegnon recently signed a new three-year deal with Fulham and he has so far featured in all three of their early-season games.
He made 30 appearances last term in helping Slavisa Jokanovic's side into the play-offs, showing his quality down the left flank.
Elsewhere, Nottingham Forest are being linked with a move for Birmingham City goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak.
The Blues have already seen one keeper leave this summer, with ex-Brewers stopper Adam Legzdins joining Burnley in the Premier League.
But with David Stockdale - who helped Brighton & Hove Albion into the top flight last term - having joined Harry Redknapp's men at St Andrew's, could Kuszczak look elsewhere for first-team football?
He is yet to feature for the Blues in the league this season, with TalkSport reporting that that has sparked interest from Forest, who are currently looking for a new keeper.
Forest were previously understood to be close to signing Adam Federici from Bournemouth before that move stalled last week.
