Queens Park Rangers boss Neil Warnock is hoping to bring in at least five players to Loftus Road over the summer.
Having taken charge of the R's in early March, Warnock is now certain that he needs to strengthen to try and ensure a play-off challenge next term.
He told the club's official website: "It's not a case of the board telling me 'you have this amount of money to spend'.
"That's not how it is going to work. I am going to be sensible, but I also plan to be constructive.
"The fans have got to trust me in the transfer window. We need a few players, but I don't intend to have too many loan players.
"I believe a player needs to have a relationship with the club. I want it to hurt people when we don't do well.
"I can see between five and seven new players coming in."
