BBC Sport has learned that Queens Park Rangers have rejected an official proposal for star striker Charlie Austin.
Having impressed in English Premier League last season, the England international is widely tipped to leave Rangers this summer, but it is now clear he will not be going on the cheap.
Namely, QPR have just rebuffed a £12 million bid for their star striker from Leicester City as they reportedly want around £15 million for the 25-year-old footballer.
Charlie Austin joined Rangers from Burnley two years ago and he didn’t need a lot of time to prove his worth at Loftus Road.
The forward first scored 19 goals in the Championship to help the club return to English Premier League, before notching 18 goals in his first ever top flight campaign.
Austin in turn earned his first England call-up in June, but has yet to make his first appearance for the national team.
