Wolverhampton Wanderers have struggled to live up to expectations this season.
Wolves are currently up for sale, meaning it is unclear just how much money they will have to spend in the next transfer window.
However, Jackett has already began planning to make additions, and he admits that it will be very important that he gets his recruitment right.
“There have been conversations yes, but I wouldn’t say there’s necessarily any real clarity in terms of, are we spending money and where are we," he said.
“Summer is an important time – it will be even more important without the emergency loan window.
"It's about making sure you have a squad and that competition, and balance and spread of players to be able to cover is paramount and imperative that you do your work well in the summer.
“It’s going to be important without the emergency loan window next year.”
Wolves’ squad have failed to live up to expectations throughout the season so far, with a number of areas of their squad seemingly lacking in quality.
Wolves have had issues both at the back and going forward throughout different stages of the campaign, and they have been stuck in mid-table as a result.
The Midlands side have assembled one of the youngest squads in the Championship, but Jackett has suggested that he could look at add some older heads at the next available opportunity.
"You may not need much but you do need some experience,” the former Millwall boss said.
“Direct competition brings out the best in players. My focus of late has been around the players that we have, getting the best out of the group that we have.”
Wolves are currently in 12th place in the Championship table, with their next match coming against Milton Keynes Dons at the weekend.
