The Rovers boss has revealed there is interest from other clubs in young defender Ben Mammola and striker Dean Stamp.
Weymouth boss Martyn Rogers is keen to sign Mammola after he made several appearances for the Terras towards the end of the 2010/11 season.
And Tiverton Town boss Mark Saunders has also expressed an interest in signing the centre half.
Stamp, who scored twenty-nine goals during the season that has just ended, is understood to be a target for several clubs, while central midfielder Rob Norrish has also been linked with Zamaretto Division One South & West sides Taunton Town and Bridgwater Town.
Jones said: "I will definitely have a battle to keep hold of some of my players.
"Martyn Rogers has already told me he is going to try and sign Ben and Mark Saunders is going to have a word with him as well.
"There is no point me lying - I have been the one saying how good he is this season.
"But I am hoping to persuade him to stay and that is all I can do. He knows I want him and it is a wait and see job.
"If my players want to give it a go at a higher level, good luck to them.
"But obviously I want everyone to remain here and I have asked everyone to stay.
"Goalscorers are hard to come by and Dean Stamp makes me pull my hair out sometimes.
"But at the end of the season he has scored me twenty-nine goals and, if you had told me that back in August, I would have ripped your hand off.
"Rob Norrish has been outstanding and his name has been linked with just about every club in the area.
"I have told all my players to not worry about anything, go away and think about it and keep me informed on what is happening."
Jones has targeted four players that he wants to sign over the summer as he aims to launch a title challenge next term.
He added: "There are four players I would like to add, but I haven't spoken to any of them.
"I have watched them play and I am going to go after all four. If I get two of them I will be very happy, but we will have to wait and see."
