Wolves are moving closer to finally landing a striker now that a number of Premier League clubs have safety in their sights.
Manager Dean Saunders is awaiting the go-ahead from two top-flight clubs to make his move for centre-forwards once those teams have beaten the drop.
He said: “I’m still looking at maybe getting one or two in – I’m trying my best to make that happen.
“There are a couple of teams who aren’t prepared to let the players go who we want until they get another point, or that type of thing.
“We’re in talks with three or four Premier League clubs – that’s what we’re trying to do right now.”
Football League clubs have until March 28 to loan players in and Wolves have signed two so far – both defenders, Reading centre- back Kaspars Gorkss and Liverpool left-back Jack Robinson.
But Saunders has wanted another striker virtually since he arrived at the club in January, and missed out on Birmingham’s 14-goal top scorer Marlon King, while they were linked with Reading’s out-of-favour forward Simon Church.
The club have kept an eye on Norwich hitman Simeon Jackson for some time, although it is understood they are now eyeing bigger front men.
Asked what type of players he was after Saunders added: “There’s a mixture. We have got a list of players we’re trying to get in – it’s a case of ‘if we can’t get him, we will get him, and so on’. We’re waiting on that.”
Saunders is unlikely to allow anyone to leave the club on loan, apart from players who have little or no chance of playing.
He said: “We have got to the point now where unless a player is a million miles away from the team, I don’t think we should be loaning anyone out now."
Meanwhile, sources in the North-East say Wolves scouts were at Gateshead’s Blue Square Premier 3-0 win over Hyde on Saturday.
Their target may have been Gateshead’s 22-year-old right-sided midfielder Josh Gillies, who has scored 10 goals this season.
