The former Republic of Ireland boss does have the likes of David McGoldrick, Daryl Murphy and Freddie Sears in attack, but a recent injury to former Leeds striker Noel Hunt means he's in the market for another attacker.
It seems that he's looking for another experienced, hard working striker - and could look to yet another former Leeds player to replace Hunt.
The East Anglia Daily Times are today reporting that Ipswich will complete a deal to sign Blackburn's Luke Varney on a loan deal next week.
Varney, 32, scored just eight goals in 50 games for Leeds before moving to Ewood Park in 2014, initially on loan, and then on a permanent deal.
Yet the former Derby man is on the fringes of the Rovers side, playing just 141 minutes this season and with no league starts to his name - and making him available for loan, with Ipswich seemingly poised to snap him up according to reports.
Varney isn't a player to set the pluses racing in Suffolk, but he's a hard working player who should fill the role vacated by Hunt as a workhorse forward and cover for his main strikers.
