According to The East Anglian Daily Times, Ipswich Town have rejected a £2.75m bid for goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski.
Birmingham City are strongly linked with Bialkowski and the bid could have come from them.
The Blues are hoping to get rid of Tomasz Kuszczak and David Stockdale and bring in a new goalkeeper with Bialkowski topping their wishlist.
The Poland international has won the Ipswich Player of the Year accolade for three consecutive seasons and the club are desperate to keep him.
New Ipswich manager Paul Hurst wants to keep the 31-year-old at Portman Road and spoke to him before he left for the World Cup.
Discussions over a new contract are likely to take place now that he has returned from international duty.
But with just one year left on his current deal, Birmingham are hoping to snap Bialkowski up.
The former Southampton and Notts County goalkeeper has been with Ipswich since 2014, racking up almost 150 appearances for the Tractor Boys.
Bialkowski is one of the most underrated and consistent performers in the Championship.
He is a fans’ favourite at Ipswich and the club will be desperate to keep hold of him for the long run because his solidity between the sticks is crucial to their success.
Birmingham would improve their goalkeeper options if they did get him, though, and they should try to take advantage of his contract uncertainty.
