Owls boss Brian Laws is currently trying to lure Chelsea youngster Ben Sahar to Hillsborough - but will the Israeli really favour a move to the Championship once again?
Sahar, who has featured six times for Avram Grant's men this season, had a spell at Wednesday's Championship rivals Queens Park Rangers earlier in the season but didn't seem to enjoy his time at Loftus Road.
He spoke to Haaretz newspaper last week, and in the interview described the R's as a team that sounds very similar to Wednesday in the current climate, and his words could well give us a huge clue as to where his immediate future lies.
In the interview he said: 'I went through a rough period. The team played badly, continued to lose ground and nothing worked.
'It was hard for me to be effective because there were no midfielders who knew how to pass to a striker. They just lobbed long balls, which is difficult if you're not a tall player. Then I underwent an operation on my appendix that sidelined me for a month and a half.'
Hmm, sound familiar?
Of course, the injuries do, that's a given with anyone who pulls on the famous blue and white shirt and plays in attack - see Sodje and Jeffers for a current comparison.
But from Sahar's interview, should he have watched the Owls play recently, I doubt he'd want more of 'lobbing long balls forward' or midfielders who don't know how to pass the ball.
We're hoping the arrival of Graham Kavanagh could well provide some ammunition should Ben arrive at S6 before this weekend's visit of Cardiff, but the presence of Adam Bolder in the Wednesday midfield may not fill the youngster with much enthusiasm, Bolder was, of course, part of the QPR side at the same time Sahar was at Loftus Road.
It looks like we'll have to keep our fingers crossed that the improved performance against Charlton last week, and the hope that Sahar wants some regular first team football, will see Sahar in a Wednesday shirt before long.
