Crawley boss Steve Evans has revealed that the League Two high-fliers have seen offers for Ryan Stevenson and James Constable knocked back.
With the club pushing hard for promotion out of the fourth tier, new arrivals are expected, with targets having been drawn up and offers made.
Among those on the Red Devils' wish list were Hearts striker Stevenson and Oxford frontman Constable.
Evans was hopeful of bringing both on board but, having seen his offers shunned, admits he is now looking to turn his attention elsewhere.
"I can confirm we have had offers turned down for both Ryan Stevenson and James Constable," he told the club's official website.
"We have spoken to Hearts and Oxford United respectively and we respect their right to turn down the offers we made.
"We are some distance apart in what we offered to what those clubs wanted so we will move on to alternative targets we have identified.
"In respect of Ryan Stevenson, we are now in discussions with his advisors in respect of a pre-contract that would see the player join us in the summer, but we will see how that progresses."
