Leicester City have turned down a bid of £3m from Sunderland for striker Leonardo Ulloa, according to Sky sources.
Turkish giants Galatasaray are also interested in signing the Argentinian, though they would prefer a loan deal - with a complicated set of further payments to make the deal permanent.
One source has told Sky Sports News HQ that Sunderland are considering an increased bid of around £5m but it is understood neither offer is currently of interest to Leicester.
Spanish side Alaves saw their bid of £1.7m rejected a week ago.
Ulloa has handed in a transfer request as he wants to move to a side where he would have more first-team opportunities.
But Leicester are adamant they will not sell unless a club matches their valuation.
