Dario Gradi says Crewe Alexandra have received no approaches for promising striker Nicky Maynard.
Premier League duo Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion have been linked with bids for the youngster, who impressed during the second half of last season after recovering from a broken leg.
Ipswich Town are the latest club to have been tipped to make an offer for Maynard, with reports suggesting the Championship side will bid in excess of £1million.
Crewe technical director Gradi would be prepared to sell the 21-year-old at the right price, but insists no offers have been received.
"West Brom's chairman (Jeremy Peace) is not backward in coming forward and I would have thought there would have been some dialogue with our chairman John Bowler by now, which there hasn't been," Gradi told The Sentinel.
"So far no-one has approached us about Nick and I doubt they will, but you never know.
"If it was the right deal and it was good for us and Nicky then we'd do it."
