Ipswich Town are reported to have bid £550,000 for Blackpool centre-half Curtis Tilt – but the Tangerines want £1m.
According to the Daily Mirror, Blackpool are looking to start a bidding war for the services of the 26-year-old, who impressed in his first-ever season of league football last term.
Reading, QPR and Portsmouth are also tracking Tilt, who is said to have wowed new Blues boss Paul Hurst with his showings against Hurst’s former side Shrewsbury.
Town have already sold Adam Webster to Bristol City for an initial £3.5m this summer, leaving them with just club captain Luke Chambers and young Chelsea loanee Trevoh Chalobah to play in the heart of defence.
Tilt made 45 starts for the Tangerines last campaign, and has also played for Halesowen Town, Hednesford Town, AFC Telford Town, Wrexham and Forest Green Rovers in his career.
