Millers boss Ronnie Moore will run the rule over Kitson in Friday night's Third Division meeting between The U's and Lincoln City at the Abbey Stadium.
Moore has previously claimed a bid for the forward was rejected although The U's are adamant they have not received any offer for the 23-year-old.
The First Division club are baulking at Cambridge's purported asking price of £500,000 but that has not deterred Moore from making a personal check on the hit-man.
U's chief Taylor has not discussed the transfer speculation with Kitson and is happy for managers to continue watching his striking ace in action.
But he issued a warning to would-be buyers by claiming Kitson's transfer fee will keep rising, the more he is watched by the likes of Moore.
"I haven't spoken to David and I don't think anything needs to be said because there will be people at these games watching people all the time," Kitson told the club's website.
"Let them come, let them watch, let them make a judgement because if he (Moore) comes for the next six games and he makes a very good judgement, then I'll know Dave will have weighed in with a hatful of goals and they'll be asking a question of Rotherham's accountants."
