Crewe boss Dario Gradi is looking to bring in two quality strikers at Gresty Road before the start of the new season.
Last season's top scorer Clayton Donaldson has joined Brentford while fellow forward Ajay Leitch-Smith is sidelined with a thigh problem.
"I would like another striker or even two," Gradi told the club's official website.
"That would please me because it would give us more options, especially if AJ [Leitch-Smith] isn't fit and available all of the time.
"I wouldn't necessary need two to go straight into the team but I would like them to be good enough to go straight in if I needed them too.
"I cannot anticipate AJ being fit for a long period over the season, so we will need to do something but I refuse to bring in someone just for the sake of it. It has to be the quality we are after."
