Jonathan Greening is hoping West Bromwich Albion can hang on to their key players during the summer.
The Baggies are looking to make an immediate return to The Premiership after succumbing to relegation last season.
Though Bryan Robson has added experience to his squad in the guise of John Hartson and Chris Perry, he is fighting to keep some of his up-and-coming players at The Hawthorns.
Promising centre half Curtis Davies is being tracked by Arsenal, while Polish goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak is being lined up by Manchester United.
But, if West Brom resist offers for the duo, then midfielder Greening feels the club are in good shape for a strong promotion push.
"The gaffer and the chairman have let it be known they don't want to sell anybody," Greening told Sky Sports News.
"Clubs have been coming in for some players and we've been turning them down.
"If that's the case, and no one gets sold before the transfer deadline, it will be brilliant because we have got such a strong squad."
Meanwhile, Steve Watson admits the team must be more ruthless in front of goal this season if promotion is to be achieved.
Watson said: "We had great support last season, but we let ourselves down.
"We didn't score enough goals. We dominated games, but didn't get the results.
"We have got to turn possession and chances into goals this season."
