Wednesday now have less than a week to complete the signing of a new striker before the close of the transfer window - and it's no doubt going to be a busy week of rumour and speculation.
Owls boss Gary Megson is eager to bolster his squad with more attacking options before the close of the current transfer window - at midnight next Monday.
Rotherham United hitman Adam Le Fondre has been subject of two bids from Wednesday already this month, and reports suggest the Owls lodged a third bid for the striker yesterday.
Wednesday have previously seen two bids for the sought-after striker rejected by the Millers, but with his contract coming to an end at the end of this season, Rotherham could well look to cash-in rather than risk losing him on a free come next summer.
It's believed a bid of around £500,000 would secure Le Fondre's services, despite some quotes from the Millers suggesting they're looking for a more unrealistic deal worth closer to the £1 million mark.
It's being reported that the Owls' latest offer, their third bid for the striker, is worth £350,000 plus an unknown player going the other way. Neither club have yet to confirm or deny these reports.
Reports in the Midlands also suggested Wednesday were chasing a striker from Championship side Leicester City. Martyn Waghorn and Jeffrey Schlupp were the two most likely to move, but Waghorn is now attracting the interest of Southampton and Schlupp, who was on-loan at Brentford last term, seems to be in the Foxes' first team plans.
If the Owls fail with the above, they could well pull a rabbit from the hat, in much the same way they did with Chris Lines and Daniel Uchechi.
Owls chairman Milan Mandaric and vice chairman Paul Aldridge face a race against time to bolster Megson's squad for a promotion push from League One this season, and it's certainly going to be an interesting week of transfer activity.
