Hulse has just one year remaining on his present deal but has snubbed the chance to prolong his stay at the club which gave him his big break.
The Railwaymen do not want to lose the prolific marksman for nothing next summer and want to cash in on his services now.
Alex manager Dario Gradi confirmed Hulse is up for sale and is awaiting enquiries from interested parties.
"Rob Hulse has declined the offer of a new contract and is therefore available for transfer," Gradi told the club's official website.
"All enquiries to assistant manager Neil Baker or myself."
The 23-year-old was Crewe's top scorer last term as The Railwaymen secured a swift return to Division One, with Hulse bagging 27 goals in all competitions.
First Division rivals West Brom have previously expressed an interest in signing Hulse and may revive their bid during the close season.
Hulse's impending departure from Gresty Road will create a void Gradi will be seeking to fill in the summer, although the Crewe chief will have the funds at his disposal to bolster his strike-force.
