Liverpool have had a £7m bid for former Huddersfield Town loanee Ben Chilwell rejected by Leicester City.

The Premier League Champions have put a £10m valuation on the 19-year-old defender, who quickly became a favourite during his loan at the John Smith's Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp is sure to have asked close friend David Wagner about Chilwell's ability and potential.

And it seems he likes what he heard and saw - but not to the tune of £10m.

An offer of an initial £5m with £2m add-ons was rejected, and t he Liverpool Echo reports that the Reds will be looking at other options unless Leicester are willing to lower their asking price.

Chilwell has one year left on his current contract at the King Power Stadium.

And Klopp is searching for a young left back to compete with Alberto Moreno.

The Leicester defender spent two months at Town on loan, making eight appearances and impressing coaching staff and fans alike.

Wagner tried to extend the teenager's spell in Yorkshire but was unable to agree a deal with Leicester.

Chilwell made his senior debut for the Foxes in the Capital One Cup last October and made two further appearances in the FA Cup in January, but is yet to make his Premier League bow.

How much do you think he's worth?
