Wolverhampton Wanderers have failed to live up to expectations this season, and they are already nine points adrift of the play-off places.
However, Jackett does not want to make wholesale changes to his squad at the next available opportunity, with the 53-year-old boss merely aiming to make some minor tweaks to his squad.
“When January comes up we need to make the right moves," Jackett said.
“We certainly know where we want to strengthen, we haven’t had the discussion in terms of financially where we’re going, but we will.
“We’re clear on the areas we need to strengthen. It won’t necessarily be a high number [of players coming in].”
Wolves had a very productive January transfer window last season, when they snapped up Benik Afobe from Arsenal to increase the threat of their forward line.
A similarly successful deal this time around would be hugely welcome at Molineux, as the pressure is on the side to start picking up some wins.
Wolves were tipped to be one of the favourites for promotion this term, but they are already nine points adrift of the play-off spots.
It leaves the squad’s top-six hopes dangling by a thread, and they will be requiring any signings they do make in January to hit the ground running, if they are to start climbing the table.
