LEICESTER CITY have reportedly rejected a bid worth £13million from Monaco for midfielder Boubakary Soumare.
The 23-year-old is being linked with a move away from the Foxes just one season after joining the club.
Ligue 1 outfit Monaco are keen on bringing Soumare back to France after he initially left Lille to join Leicester.
They initially asked Leicester about the possibility of signing Soumare on loan, although the Foxes immediately rejected the proposal.
Monaco then came back with a bid of £10m, rising to £13m with add-ons, according to Foot Mercato.
But that offer is claimed to also have been rejected by the Premier League outfit.

The sale also means Monaco are eyeing replacements in midfield, with Soumare fitting the bill.
