Chris Hughton insists his side's Premier League fate next season must not rest solely at the feet of striker Ricky Van Wolfswinkel.
The Norfolk club shattered their record transfer fee with the acquisition of the Holland forward from Sporting Lisbon, and are expected to further bolster the squad with a £3.5m move for Birmingham's England Under-21 winger Nathan Redmond.
While Hughton is clearly hoping Van Wolfswinkel will give his side a much-needed cutting edge in the final third, the Norwich boss is cautious against heaping too much responsibility on the 24-year-old.
"We have brought Ricky in here for a particular reason, but he is a team player, first and foremost, that has a responsibility to the team to lead the line and ultimately score goals, but that comes with the territory," said Hughton.
"I don't believe with how tactical and the speed of the game nowadays that you can just be a goal scorer, first and foremost you have to be a team player."
Van Wolfswinkel earned his second senior Dutch cap against Indonesia in June, and is confident he can make a quick transition from the Portuguese league to the hustle-and-bustle of the English top flight.
"I want to show from day one what I can do and I hope for a great season," he said.
"At the beginning, it will be new for the defenders who play against me, that will change after a while - but if they know how I play or if they don't know how I play, it will always be up to me to do well for the team.
"I know my qualities fit in the English league."
