Mansfield Town have confirmed they have received an enquiry for Sam Clucas from bitter rivals Chesterfield.
No further news about the approach from the League One side has been made available.
Clucas enjoyed a superb debut campaign at One Call Stadium and finished as top scorer with 13 goals from 43 appearances.
But the winger has made just one start this season after picking up an injury in pre-season.
Lincoln-born Clucas spent his junior career in Leicester City’s academy set-up and was at the King Power Stadium for six years, before leaving the club in May 2007.
League One Chesterfield are currently flush with cash after selling Liam Cooper to Leeds United for a fee thought to be in the region of £750,000.
