Skysports.com understands Coventry City have turned down a bid from Championship rivals Burnley for Lukas Jutkiewicz.
The 22-year-old joined Coventry last summer on a three-year contract after the club paid Everton £300,000 for his signature.
He netted nine goals during his debut season at the Ricoh Arena and was on target in the Sky Blues' 2-2 draw at Burnley back in March.
Jutkiewicz was a target for Southampton earlier in the summer and has now been the subject of a failed £1.5million bid from Burnley.
It is understood that Coventry want £3million for the youngster and that would represent a massive profit for the club.
Clarets boss Eddie Howe is busy trying to add to his squad before the start of the season and has agreed a fee with Preston for winger Keith Treacy.
Peterborough United's George Boyd is another target for Howe, whose side face Watford in their opening game of the season on Saturday.
Jutkiewicz, meanwhile, is a doubt for Coventry's first match against Leicester after suffering a dead leg in Saturday's friendly against Norwich City.
