Leicester have immediately rejected a third bid for defender Wesley Fofana from Chelsea worth £70m in total.
Chelsea's latest offer was believed to be £60m with a possible £10m in add-ons - but the fee was unlikely to hit the full £70m total because the additional fees have been described to Sky Sports News as "ambitious" targets.
Fofana wants to move to Stamford Bridge this summer and speaking after Leicester's penalty shoot-out victory at Stockport in the EFL Cup, Brendan Rodgers confirmed Fofana was training with the club's U23s after failing to turn up to a training session last week.
The centre-back was left out of Leicester's defeat to Southampton at the weekend because Rodgers said his mind was not in the right place.
"In terms of Wesley, just a young player who is not quite in the right frame of mind at the moment to play," Rodgers said after the 2-1 loss on Saturday. "A lot going on behind the scenes, which I understand. It's a difficult moment for him.
"He's a good kid, he's been great for us whilst he's been here and at this moment it's a difficult one for him. You can't afford that, certainly playing a Premier League game if you're not 100 per cent fully focused."
