Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido knows he faces a battle to keep hold of his in-form strike duo this summer.
Both Greg Pearson, who has just signed a new contract, and Shaun Harrad have made the step up from the Blue Square Premier look relatively simple, notching 13 and 18 goals respectively this season.
Peschisolido is aware the pair may attract interest, but he intends to keep both players at the Pirelli Stadium unless the club receive an offer which is simply too good to refuse.
"Well, both Greg Pearson and Shaun Harrad's goal-to-game ratio is fantastic and we would love to keep them here for next season," Peschisolido told skysports.com.
"I'd be very surprised if people aren't looking at them though because they are a real handful and know how to score goals.
"So, it will be difficult to keep them, but at the same time we have a club to run and we want to keep our best players so that we can progress on the pitch."
The Brewers' first season in League Two saw them flirt with the play-offs for most of the campaign and Peschisolido is eager to strengthen in the summer, with the club already monitoring a number of players on trial.
He added: "We have had a number of trialists on board recently and it gives us a chance to look at players because it is important that we don't let any good ones slip through the net.
"We've had some very good players come in and we will continue to monitor them until the end of the season and we may even choose to bring them in for pre-season before deciding on whether to offer them a deal, but it is very promising at the moment.
"The majority of players have come in with a good attitude and ability as well as a great footballing brain, which are all good attributes in a young player."
