Blackpool boss Simon Grayson is hoping Rangers striker Alan Gow will sign a permanent contract at Bloomfield Road.
Gow is currently on loan at the Championship club until January and has scored three goals in eight appearances, including a last-gasp winner in Saturday's 4-3 victory at Watord.
He turned down Birmingham City and Norwich City before joining Blackpool and Grayson is aware other clubs will be checking on the 26-year-old.
Having seen Wes Hoolahan and Kaspars Gorkss leave Blackpool after impressing for the club, Grayson is anxious to avoid a similar scenario with Gow.
"It's always the case," said Grayson in the Daily Mirror. "Hoolahan and Gorkss went off to other clubs.
"All we can do is spot these players, get fees agreed and hopefully Alan's enjoyed himself and we can conclude something.
"When he keeps performing like that, we'd like to get something sorted. He had opportunities to go to Norwich and Birmingham and turned them down and came here.
"There's a fee agreed with Rangers and we've talked about it in the last few weeks.
"We'll hopefully we'll get one or two on longer-term contracts in the next week or 10 days."
