Charlton Athletic owner Thomas Sandgaard has no desire to sell Jayden Stockley this summer.
The 28-year-old scored 20 goals in the previous campaign despite a spell on the sidelines with a back problem.
Stockley, who has two years to run on his Addicks deal, has been linked with Sheffield Wednesday.
He joined the South Londoners from Preston last July after a successful loan spell with Charlton. Sheffield Wednesday and Portsmouth were both keen on him at the time.
“There is interest in him because he is probably the best forward in League One,” Sandgaard told the South London Press. “It is natural that he creates a lot of interest.
“He had a period with an injury last season that hurt the number of goals he ended up scoring. But he is still a great player and he is also a great character to have around the dressing room.
“He has a lot of value for us. If we were to let go of him it would have to be for an astronomical amount.
“I definitely see him being an integral part of our team.”
