Sensi confirmed three arrivals by name, and admitted that the race is still on to capture Adriano from owners Internazionale.
The Roman club finished in second place in Serie A, just a point away from retaining their title, but, nonetheless, the new season will bring new faces.
"We have already signed four players (Traianos) Dellas, (Christian )Pannuci, (Davide) Bombardini and one other," Sensi revealed.
"We are still chasing two more and one of those is Adriano."
The fourth signing is believed to be Angelo Di Livio, who has been called into the World Cup squad and will bring a wealth of experience to the Roma dressing room.
With Panucci being signed permanently, after a successful loan spell in Rome from Monaco, Dellas arriving from Perugia and Bombardini from Palermo, it is the Adriano news that is likely to cause the most interest.
The young Brazilian has excelled on loan at Fiorentina from Inter, but the admission that Roma are looking to sign another striker adds momentum to the rumours that Vincenzo Montella may finally be on his way out of the club.
The Italian international has attracted interest from a host of clubs, not least English giants Manchester United.
