Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Mick McCarthy admits it will be a challenge to sign Falkirk forward Alan Gow.
The former Airdrie United man has been linked with a move away from the Scottish Premier League club in the January transfer window.
Wolves have already had a bid for the 24-year-old turned down by The Bairns, and the former Sunderland manager admits it will difficult to bring the player to Molineux.
"There's a number of people now interested in him, so there might be a scramble to see what money they can get," McCarthy told the club's official website.
"If that's the case, we'll just have to see what happens. We're not going to keep going back because we can't. We'll take stock and see what happens."
Falkirk boss John Hughes says he is only interested in letting Gow join the likes of Celtic, Rangers or a club in the Premiership, but is keen to keep hold of him this month.
"Unless I can get another two in for real competition up front, then we have to keep [Gow] until the end of the season," Hughes told Radio Scotland.
"[If it comes from] Celtic, Rangers or the English Premiership, great, he deserves everything he gets. But if not, I think he should stay with Falkirk.
"It's the only one (Wolves bid) that's been put in. I'm not so sure how much it is.
"I think Gow's a little worried that if he keeps playing with Falkirk Football Club, then international recognition might be hard to get.
"But I'm 90 per cent sure that in the next B international he'll get a call-up, so Walter (Smith, the Scotland manager) can get a closer look at him."
