Despite revealing that the Foxes are lining up possible targets, Pearson insists that the majority of players who helped secure promotion will be given the opportunity to impress next season.
"We've got to go into it with a clear vision of how we want to approach the season," the Leicester boss told Sky Sports News. "We're well down the line in terms of how we go about improving the squad but we have the nucleus of a very good side here anyway.
"The type of player and the quality has to be right but it's going to be about adding to what we've got.
"It's not about changing the fundamental make-up of the squad, it'll be about trying to complement what we already have to make us competitive."
Leicester take on Reading at the Madejski Stadium on Monday.
