Cheltenham Town have had a six-figure bid for AFC Fylde striker Danny Rowe rejected, according to reports in the north west.
The Robins are believed to have offered a club record smashing fee of £150,000 for Rowe, which could potentially rise to £180,000. Cheltenham have never previously shelled out more than £50,000 for any player, which they paid for Grant McCann, Brian Wilson and Jermaine McGlashan.
Rowe, 28, signed a new two-year deal last summer with National League club Fylde, also inserting an option to extend that deal until the summer of 2020.
He is their highest paid player and scored 28 goals last term.
Fylde chairman David Haythornthwaite told the Blackpool Gazette: “We have had interest from Cheltenham. Their first offer (£25,000) was disrespectful but they have upped it since.
“The last offer they made us was a six-figure sum but I have made it clear to them that we are not selling Danny Rowe for the kind of money they have offered so far.”
