Bolton Wanderers could be ready to sell goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi in the January transfer window.
Manager Owen Coyle has already acknowledged that he could be looking to strengthen his squad in January.
As such he may have to raise cash by offloading players and Al Habsi is very much a saleable asset.
The Omani international is currently on a season-long loan at Wigan, where he has been impressing with a string of excellent displays.
Indeed Al Habsi's presence at the DW Stadium has seen Chris Kirkland move on loan to Leicester in order to get regular first-team football.
It is understood a number of Premier League clubs are now keeping a close check on Al Habsi, which could prompt Wigan to make his move permanent in January.
"It's all hearsay at the moment," said Coyle in the Bolton News.
"But if a bid comes in we'll sit down with Ali and his advisors and look at it.
"We can't really talk about it until it happens. We know he's been playing well, but we knew he was a top goalkeeper when we loaned him out.
"He needed to play and it was a great deal business wise for the club and it allowed Ali to play Premier League matches as well as enabling us to promote Adam Bogdan, who is also an excellent keeper.
"It was a win-win situation for us. If a bid comes in January, we'll look at it, and do the right thing for the football club."
