Recognizing the need for more firepower, Rohl has acknowledged the importance of prioritizing a new striker. In response to whether Sheffield Wednesday will focus on recruiting a striker, Rohl stated, “I think we know this. We need in front some players that have maybe really the quality to finish.”
