Coventry have expressed their interest in Peterborough forwards Aaron Mclean and Craig Mackail-Smith, according to Posh director of football Barry Fry.
Peterborough went down 3-2 at the Ricoh Arena last Saturday and Fry revealed that the Sky Blues approached him immediately after the game to enquire about the pair.
Coventry have already had a bid for the duo rejected and Fry has warned the Midlands club that they do not have enough money to afford either of them.
"Coventry told me straight after our game there on Saturday they wanted to sign Aaron and Craig in January so I told them our asking price," he told the Peterborough Evening Telegraph.
"They are going to discuss it at a board meeting and get back to me but believe me there isn't enough money in Coventry to get either of them.
"We are not interested in selling Craig anyway. If we were we would be more likely to sell him to a Premier League club because there has been a bit of interest.
"But our chairman is keen to keep as much of the squad together as possible because even if we suffered the misfortune of relegation we would have a strong team for a League One campaign."
Mclean is on the transfer list at London Road at his own request having revealed earlier in the week that he is unhappy at the club.
Peterborough are currently rock-bottom of the Championship and they take on Watford on Saturday in desperate need of some points.
