Kevin Davies is hoping Bolton bolster their attacking options this summer, believing competition is healthy.
The 33-year-old accepts that his own place in the side could come under threat should fresh faces be drafted in, even as club captain.
The experienced striker is unfazed by the challenge, though, and insists the Trotters must strengthen if they are to progress.
Ivan Klasnic, who spent the 2009/10 campaign on loan at the Reebok Stadium, looks almost certain to pen full-time terms, but Davies believes Owen Coyle would be well advised to look for at least one more forward.
"It would be good to see another couple of strikers come in," he said.
"There's always been competition for places at the club, especially up front.
"We've had some great strikers here and I've always managed to stay in the side - but it's not about me, it's about the team.
"I feel as though I can still play and do a job for the team and I'm enjoying every minute of it."
Davies is convinced the right recruits can help Bolton push on next season, with a top-half finish not out of the question.
"We want to set ourselves a top-10 finish, and if we start the season right with our confidence up and get points on the board, then who knows where we can go?" he told the Bolton News.
Another man hoping to play a major role in aiding the Trotters' cause next season is Sean Davis, who is yet to show the Bolton faithful what he is capable of.
The midfielder made just four appearances for the club after signing from Portsmouth last summer before a knee ligament injury ended his season.
He is, however, planning to return early from pre-season and is confident he will be raring to go by the time the 2010/11 campaign gets under way.
"I'll be in two or three times a week when the lads are off," said the former England Under-21 international.
"I have got to maintain the strength and fitness through the knee, so when everyone reports back for pre-season, I'll hopefully be up there with the fittest.
"With the injury I have had I need to make sure I don't go over the top and prepare right.
"Next season, I want to be fit and ready, so I can play as many games as I can."
