Karl Henry has welcomed the improvements to the Wolves squad so far this summer.
The Midlands club have currently spent £15million on new talent as they look to build on last season's successful Premier League campaign under manager Mick McCarthy.
Belgian defender Jelle Van Damme signed from Anderlecht. Steven Mouyokolo and Stephen Hunt were both signed from Hull City while Steven Fletcher joined from Burnley.
Midfielder Henry, who has scored six goals in 151 appearances for Wanderers, is pleased with the current state of affairs at Molineux.
"We know how difficult it's going to be again just to survive in the division and we need to improve. There's no point anyone thinking it's suddenly going to become easier and we're going to be aiming for the Europa League or anything like that," he said.
"Every other team in the division is going to improve and we are going to have to do the same and the signings look good.
"Van Damme has got Champions League experience and Mouyokolo has had a season in the Premier League. Fletcher has already proved he can score goals at this level and will add to our attacking options and I've always liked Stephen Hunt as a player.
"Every time I've seen him play he's not only shown his quality but he also has that work ethic which is the minimum of what the gaffer requires from everyone here.
"He works really hard for the team, he's honest and he's determined, and I think all that will ensure he fits in perfectly here.
"He also chips in with a few goals, as well as creating chances, and should add to our threat going forward. It's good not only to bring these new players in for what they can bring to the squad, but also in continuing to push the rest of us already here.
"When you're at a club and new players come in you have to raise your own standards if you want to keep your place and that can only benefit the squad as a whole," added Henry.
