That’s according to their manager Xisco, who speaking after the closure of the transfer window last weekend made clear he would like to add reinforcements at that end of the pitch.
The Star understands Wednesday were left frustrated by Jamal Lowe’s decision to join Swansea City.
But with the window closed and their EFL registration list submitted with one place left open, one free agent could still be signed.
Many Wednesdayites clamoured towards the name Andre Gray, with the forward having worked with Xisco before and available after his deal with Aris was terminated earlier this summer.
But the former Burnley and Watford man has since signed for Saudi club Al-Riyadh - it was not known whether he ever represented a realistic option for the Owls.
Steven Fletcher - never really attributed to a nostalgic Hillsborough reunion - has since signed for League Two Hollywood club Wrexham.
Here are 16 attacking free agent options still available to Wednesday.
1. Andre Ayew
A toure de force just about any time he has strapped his boots up to play against Wednesday, Ghana international Ayew is no spring chicken at 33 but in terms of offering a bit of x-factor, the Owls could do a lot worse. Reportedly has offers from Saudi Arabia, the MLS and Turkey.
2. Tarique Fosu
It’s confused one or two that he doesn’t have a club yet. Also a Ghana international, he’s a good age at 27 and played a big part in the Brentford team that did so well at Championship level. Operates more as a winger than a striker but can deliver something tricky.
3. Ronan Curtis
Not long ago the source of transfer interest from a handful of Championship clubs, Republic of Ireland international Curtis is on the comeback trail from injury and is still training with Portsmouth despite his free agent status. Has turned down reduced terms at Fratton Park, with Blackburn reportedly interested in taking him on.
4. Lewis Grabban
His time in Saudi Arabia with Al-Ahli cut short, Grabban has enjoyed success against Wednesday in years gone by. He’s no stranger to South Yorkshire having played at Rotherham United previously and at 35 would represent a short-term option.
