Maxime Colin is keen to see Brentford keep hold of their star players as the transfer window ticks down to the 11pm deadline.
He said: “We hope everyone stays with the club. When the market closes it'll be better as some players are tipped to leave.”
Tarkowski's future has been up for discussion after the defender refused to face Burnley on January 15, for which he was disciplined.
The 23-year-old subsequently revealed in his apology statement he has been looking into returning north to be closer to his family.
Colin doesn't expect to find out the whole saga but hopes a solution can be found and Tarkowski remain at Griffin Park.
He added: “We will never know the inside of the discussion. I don't think we know everything but I hope we find a solution to keep Tarky.”
