Glenn Hoddle has insisted he is happy to bide his time on one of his three mystery targets until right up to the start of the season, believing it would be "worth the wait".
Wolves' chief executive Jez Moxey has confirmed bids have been tabled for "several" of Hoddle's targets, with the manager himself hoping for the addition of three more new faces in time for the assault on the Championship.
He would prefer things sorted out one way or the other as soon as possible, but will allow one particular target as long as is necessary in a bid to get his man.
"We are still hoping to bring players in but it's always the way that you can never get them all before the start of pre-season," said Hoddle.
"I want to bring three more players in to add to the depth that we already have.
"You always have to have a long list because it's so difficult to get people in these days and things can change so quickly.
"If we could get the three I'm after in tomorrow then I am confident we could go very well this year.
"But with one in particular I am happy to take a risk and wait for quite late, maybe up to the start of the season, because he would be worth it."
Hoddle's words suggest the particular target could be at a Premiership club who are seeking a replacement before letting him go.
The manager has confirmed he will be bringing in at least one new striker, possibly two if Kenny Miller eventually departs for Sunderland, although he has reiterated he would like the Scotsman to stay.
Wolves have been linked with 33-year-old Everton defender Alan Stubbs, and 22-year-old Tottenham midfielder Johnnie Jackson, and Hoddle has confirmed his list includes a mixture of youth and experience.
The majority of Hoddle's squad have reported back to Molineux for team meetings and weight checks to see if they had adhered to their individually tailored summer fitness programmes.
There was then a first running session at Compton before reporting to Lilleshall where they are spending the week.
