Bolton boss Owen Coyle insists he is happy for high-profile clubs to pay attention to his star players.
Trotters men Gary Cahill and Johan Elmander have attracted interest from some of England and Europe's biggest outfits of late after producing solid displays this season.
Centre-back Cahill is a reported target of Tottenham and Liverpool amongst others, while top scorer Elmander is understood to be on the radar of Spartak Moscow and Fenerbahce.
However Coyle, whose side visit Everton in Premier League action on Wednesday, says having wanted men in his squad serves as confirmation his players are performing well.
"I don't go overboard about it - I accept it. It doesn't surprise me," said Coyle in the Daily Mirror.
"There are clubs looking at a lot of my players because of how they are doing. I don't get too worried about it, they are looking because they are doing well for me.
"I don't concern myself with bids until they happen. If people make them we will deal with that.
"Ultimately it will be up to the club to decide what's in the best interests when it comes to the business side."
Coyle is hoping Cahill remains at the Reebok Stadium and is confident he can keep the England centre-half for at least the rest of the campaign.
The manager added he would be happy to keep Elmander if the Swede decides to sign a new deal.
He said: "Johan's contract is running out. The powers-that-be need to sort that out."
