Financially-stricken Pompey need to sell players to raise funds and defender Pearce is widely expected to join Leeds United.
Utility man Halford is also attracting interest from several clubs, while Ipswich Town have revived their bid to sign youngster Joel Ward.
A number of other players are set to head out of Fratton Park and Appleton is expecting a busy period ahead of next season's campaign in League One.
"It could be as big as 17 or 18 players leaving the football club and the same number coming in. It's going to be a tough, tough, summer with a lot of hard work.
"There are agreements in place with various clubs over Greg and Jason that they wouldn't play the game, which we had to abide to, because we need to recoup the money for their services.
"Benjani, Dave Kitson and Kanu didn't travel to the game. Their future has to be away from Fratton Park, or this football club won't be able to survive, it's as simple as that. They have known that for a long, long time"

POMPEY star David Norris has spoken out about his reasons for joining.
Mr Norris says he hopes the move will encourage more fans to get involved and takeover bid.
He said: ‘What the fans are doing is great. No one wants to see the club go under, and I’m happy to chip in and do my bit too.
‘They’ve backed us through a difficult few months and their support has been amazing.
‘Now that a few of us on the team have joined, hopefully it will encourage more people to get involved and help raise awareness of the scheme.’

April 12, 2012 THE Pompey Supporters’ Trust has urged fans to back its share scheme after Trevor Birch’s liquidation warning. Spokesman Scott Mclachlan said: ‘The statement from Mr Birch reiterates the message that Pompey could be a matter of weeks from disappearing unless a buyer can be found.
‘The CVA is crucial as it is hoped it could deliver a debt-free Pompey to any prospective buyer and will make urgent restructuring to cut the club’s running costs easier. ‘It highlights that the trust’s pre-share issue is currently the only positive move anyone has made to save it.
‘We ask everyone to get involved in pledging to buy a share by visiting communitypompey.co.uk and depositing £100 to register your interest.’
