This leaves the Owls very short of options in attack, with Pulis admitting that he “definitely” needs to bolster his side’s attacking options.
Via Yorkshire Live, Pulis hinted that he may look to dup into the free-agent market, saying: “That’s one of the areas we definitely do need. I think the supporters will understand that we have not got the balance right that we need there.
“We will see and look at what comes up. I will be as patient as I possibly can. We will try and get as many points as we can. If we get the opportunity to bring in one or two players, that will be absolutely fantastic for the football club.”
Here, we take a look at three attackers Wednesday could look to bring in on free transfers…
Niasse was released by Everton at the end of last season and is still on the lookout for a new club.
The 30-year-old only managed to score nine goals in 42 games for the Toffees, and struggled to impress out on loan at Hull and Cardiff.
Niasse has a point to prove, though, and a drop down to the Championship could see him get back to his best in front of goal.
Wednesday could also look to take a chance on Bony.
Bony has been without a club since leaving Swansea City in 2019, scoring only four goals in 26 appearances in his second spell with the club.
He has scored plenty of goals in the Premier League in the past, though, and he could replicate that form at Hillsborough if the service is right.
Sanogo was very close to signing for Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough in the summer, however a move broke down to the forward.
The former Arsenal striker is on the lookout for a new club after leaving Toulouse at the end of the season, scoring four goals last term.
He is a strong, quick, tall striker who could be a useful asset for the Owls.
