A host of clubs are ready to test Bournemouth's resolve over highly-rated midfielder Marvyn Bartley, skysports.com understands.
A number of sides from both League One and Two have been tracking Bartley and are looking to seal a deal before deadline day.
Milton Keynes Dons and Brighton are keen, whilst Wycombe, Rotherham and Bradford are also contemplating a late move.
Bartley himself has been concentrating on trying to help The Cherries move away from the relegation zone in League Two.
Bournemouth started the season on minus 17 points, but they are now up to ten, and not without a chance of catching the pack.
But they may have to do it without Bartley, if a significant bid is lodged within the next ten days.
