Wolves are ready to raid the loan window when it opens on Wednesday.
He said: “We certainly tried [to bring in a striker before the deadline] but no, there wasn’t any luck. It [the loan window] definitely does become an option, we will continue our recruitment and try to improve the squad.”
Jackett will be looking to bring in a striker when the loan window opens, having seen his forward options limited due to an injury to Nouha Dicko.
Dicko tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the 2-1 victory over Charlton last week, leaving only Benik Afobe and Adam Le Fondre as senior strikers that Jackett can call upon.
It is stated in the report that Wolves looked at bringing a player in before the close of the transfer window at the beginning of this month, but were unable to see a deal over the line.
Bournemouth’s Yann Kermorgant and Frazier Campbell of Crystal Palace are named as players that Jackett looked at, and it is stated that interest in the duo could be revived when the loan window opens.
Jackett could do with bringing at least one more striker in to provide cover now that Dicko is out of action, and it would come as no surprise to see a new forward arrive at Molineux later this week.
