Michael Laudrup admits there is still work to do in the transfer market as he prepares Swansea for their second Premier League season.
Laudrup replaced Brendan Rodgers as Swansea manager last month and has already added Chico Flores and Jonathan de Guzman to the squad.
But with last season's loanees Steven Caulker and Gylfi Sigurdsson having left the club, Swansea have not strengthened the group of players who so impressed with their flowing football last term.
As a result, Laudrup is expected to bring in at least two more major signings before the new campaign starts next month.
The Danish boss is thought to be eyeing additional goalscoring options with Middlesbrough's Marvin Emnes and Wolves forward Kevin Doyle both linked with moves to the Liberty Stadium.
Work to do
"There's more work to do," Laudrup told the South Wales Evening Post.
"I don't want to say so much about the names, because we have to realise there are a lot of clubs in the same position as we are right now.
"We have to spend our money well. We have to do things quietly because if we talk too much, other clubs will say 'Oh, we would like that as well'.
"The only thing we do by mentioning names is put the prices up, and the only people who will be satisfied with that are the clubs who own the players.
"We cannot say so much, but we are working on things."
Ideally, Laudrup would like to bring new signings in before Swansea's pre-season trip to America next weekend but he realises that could be optimistic.
"An ideal world in football doesn't exist. It would be best for us if we could get the new players in before we go," the 48-year-old added.
"I'm happy with the two signings we have and we are working on others as well, but there are a lot of things to consider because you have the player, the club, the other club.
"A lot of things have to come together before we can make the signings, but hopefully before US would be great. Let's see - it's possible."
In the meantime, Laudrup insists he will give every player the chance to impress during pre-season.
"I wanted to come here and give players a chance to see what they've got," he said.
"I don't want to throw anybody away."
