According to reports from The Mirror (live transfer blog), Preston are keen to hang on to the defender and want to offer him new terms.
Davies has progressed through the youth ranks at Deepdale and has been an integral part of the senior squad since 2013.
Preston will face a fight to retain his services with so many clubs keen to secure his signature.
The report claims that Celtic boss Neil Lennon is a big admirer of the defender while Stuttgart have been tracking him for two years.
Davies, who is a left-footed centre-half, can also play as a left-back. He was impressive against Manchester City when he faced them in last season’s Carabao Cup.
