Danny Wilson is on the look out for a striker with an eye for goals to haul Sheffield United back out of Npower League One next season.
The Blades scored just 44 goals in the campaign as they went down from the Npower Championship, and the newly appointed manager will be hoping to guide his side to an instant return.
The newly appointed Blades manager said: "Look at the club's record last season and they did not score enough goals.
"The 'goals for' column was simply not good enough. So, we may have to get someone in to improve that.”
Cardiff City's Jon Parkin, who has scored 96 goals throughout his career, is one striker being linked to Sheffield United, although the club have not confirmed their interest.
Wilson will also look to hold on to promising youngster Jordan Slew, who is attracting interest from the Premier League.
Wilson said: "Jordan has got to trust us and what we are telling him. He has to trust Sheffield United Football Club, the staff we have here and his teammates."
The current Sheffield United squad will travel to Worksop Town for a friendly on Tuesday night.
