Hull City manager Nick Barmby admits he has already identified targets for next season in a bid to win promotion from the Championship.
The club's head of football operations Adam Pearson has previously suggested that the Tigers boss may have to sign players on free transfers.
The East Yorkshire side have an outside chance of reaching the play-offs this season, with the club four points off sixth-place with four games remaining.
But Barmby is hoping to be backed by owner Assem Allam when the summer transfer window opens and has revealed that he has a firm idea of his targets.
He said: "We've got very good ideas and I've got very good people behind me.
"We're ready to go with certain things. We just need the green light.
"If you get a bit of time and a bit of money, then you've got a good chance."
