Hearts boss John McGlynn has passed on his striking targets to the board in the hope of bolstering his attacking options.
The Tynecastle manager has been searching for reinforcements up front all summer, with just John Sutton and Gordon Smith as recognised options to lead the line.
McGlynn has now passed a list of options to majority shareholder Vladimir Romanov and director Sergejus Fedetovas, and hopes to hear back about moves to bring a new face to the club soon.
Speaking to the Edinburgh Evening News in the wake of Hearts’ second half collapse against ten-man Inverness Caledonian Thistle, the former Raith Rovers boss said he was “reasonably confident” he would get his man.
McGlynn said: ““Everyone knows we need [a striker] but we need the go-ahead to do that.
“That’s not new. Most managers need things passed by a board of directors or a chief executive. It’s no different here.
“We need to put recommendations and it’s up to them to say ‘do this’ or ‘do that’.”
