Michael Laudrup insists Swansea will have to bring in replacements before they could afford to let the likes of striker Danny Graham go.
The ?5million-rated Swans forward has been heavily linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium, with Norwich City said to be the likely suitors.
Laudrup last week saw a reported ?3m bid for Kenwyne Jones rejected by Stoke City and the Dane has since hinted that Swansea need to have a ready-made replacement to fill Graham's void if the 27-year-old was to leave.
"In the end it's always about the balance of the team. Of course it is important as well what the players feel. It's a combination of everything about the player, about the club and about the team," Laudrup told the Daily Mirror.
"In the end you make a decision and that's it. But Danny is 100 per cent professional in training and in games. We do not know what will happen - he may leave, he may stay.
"We have to find the best solution for everybody."
