According to The Northern Echo, Everton, Tottenham, Southampton, Manchester City, Middlesbrough and Millwall are interested in signing Maja from Sunderland in the January transfer window.
The 20-year-old forward is out of contract at the League One outfit at the end of the season.
Ross recently told The Chronicle that the youngster has been given a deadline of the end of this week to put pen to paper on a new contract.
The Sunderland manager has revealed what he has told Maja should the forward not commit his future to the Black Cats.
Ross told The Chronicle: “From a player-to-manager relationship I would still believe he will stay. As time goes on, and there’s no commitment, you have to have some doubt.
“I have said this to him, I will never take things personally. I get both perspectives on it, his and the club’s, and he knows it. This is the best place for him and I hope he believes that.”
Potential good signing for Tottenham Hotspur and Everton
Maja is only 20 years of age, but the forward has shown enough potential and quality in League One to suggest that he can be a star for a major club in the future.
Tottenham and Everton will be a better team with Maja in it, but it is hard to see Sunderland sell the 20-year-old forward in the January transfer window, as he is their main player in attack and Ross's team are aiming to win automatic promotion to the Championship.
