The Sky Blues face a battle to keep hold of their best players due to their financial problems and Christie is one of the club's most prized assets.
Full-back Christie is regarded as one of the best young defenders in the country after bursting onto the scene in the 2011-12 season, making 37 appearances in the Championship.
Championship duo Blackburn and Ipswich are both thought to be long-term admirers of Christie and are monitoring his situation at the Ricoh Arena.
Coventry are reluctant to lose Christie, but know they would find it difficult if they receive a sizeable offer for his services due to their financial predicament.
