Charlton owner Thomas Sandgaard has confirmed that a number of Premier League clubs are interested in signing Mason Burstow.
Chelsea were linked recently with a move for the 18-year-old, who has scored in every senior competition he has represented the Addicks in this season.
Brentford have also been mooted as admirers of Burstow, who has scored six goals in 14 appearances for the League One club.
He signed a professional contract in the summer.
“We have got multiple Premier League teams who are fishing to see if they can do a quick deal when it comes to Burstow,” Sandgaard told the South London Press.
“We’ll see what happens. I don’t think any of them have come up to the price level that I’m expecting, considering his talent. We’re just sitting tight.
“In contrast to the past, we can sit back and wait to see if the price is right instead of panicking and selling on the last day of the window. That is not happening any more.
“There is a right value for a very talented player like Mason Burstow.
“We’ll see what happens. If it doesn’t happen now then maybe it will happen in the next year or two.”
Burstow had trained with Chelsea prior to Charlton making a move for the youngster.
