Coyle has inherited a squad at the DW Stadium distinctly lacking in attacking firepower.

Mauro Boselli and Franco Di Santo have already left the club, and Arouna Kone would appear to be edging towards the exits - with Dave Whelan having admitted to receiving three bids for the Ivorian forward.

Addressing the lack of goals within his ranks is considered to be a priority for Coyle, who has succeeded Roberto Martinez at the helm of the 2013 FA Cup winners.

The Scot is aware of the areas that require the most work, as he looks to bounce Wigan back into the Premier League at the first time of asking, and is expecting there to be movement on the transfer front.

He told the Wigan Evening Post: "It's fair to say we are looking for a minimum of two, possibly three, strikers, and we're working desperately hard to make that happen.

"Arouna has done well for this club, but at this moment in time we need players who want to be here and want to take Wigan Athletic back into the Premier League.

"That gives us the chance at this early stage of the summer to adjust our thinking and bring in the necessary quality to the forward line."
