A number of clubs are believed to be casting an eye over the likes of Derek Riordan, Ian Murray and Garry O'Connor.
It is feared that bids could come in for some of Hibs' best talents when the transfer window reopens, but Mowbray is refusing to be downbeat.
"I have no fears about other clubs looking. They are coming to watch our players - and I see the list of scouts who have been each week and the English Premiership has been well represented - because they've heard we have some decent players and they want to see for themselves," said Mowbray.
"But I'd be disappointed if there were none coming because that would say we don't have any players anyone wants to come and watch.
"If people want my players they have to make that phone call but my phone does not ring. If it does then we'll wait and see what develops.
"If someone wants to offer crazy money for one of our players and I think I can use it to develop the squad then we'll assess whether we sell the player for the money on offer. But if we feel he is more valuable to us than the money on offer then we'll stick with him."
