MICK Harford is overseeing Millwall's summer recruitment drive while manager Ian Holloway takes a week-long holiday.
And Harford says the Lions are already closing in on "one or two" new additions.
The 55-year-old, who heads up the club's scouting department, is busy lining up deals which could be finalised upon Holloway's return to work.
Carlos Edwards is likely to become Millwall's first signing of the close season on a one-year contract from Ipswich Town.
Beyond that deal, NewsAtDen understands the Lions will be looking to strengthen in every area except for the full-back positions and plan to reduce the average age of the squad.
But Harford's number one priority is to find some goalscorers.
He said: "Over the past week I've had lots of meetings with agents, following up on the work we've done and the players we've watched throughout the year.
"We're making lots of enquiries and having lots of meetings with agents and players. I had a couple of meetings on Tuesday and a couple on Wednesday with players we're keen on.
"My role is to get the player and the agent to agree some kind of deal and then eventually sit them down in front of the manager.
"I know for a fact that if they sit down in front of Ollie they will be utterly impressed by what he's got to say to them and they'll become a Millwall player.
"We've had numerous meetings about where we need to strengthen, how many we'd like to bring in and who we fancy.
"We're close to one or two new signings but Ollie does not want to make wholesale changes because the team finished the season very well.
"If you look at the squad, it's blatantly obvious that we need some strikers and some pace – it doesn't take a genius to figure that out."
