The Turin club need a major change-around in form to avoid the drop into Serie B and were delighted to land former Arsenal man Manninger.
However, general manager Sandro Mazzola insists that there will be more new faces.
"Obviously it is a very difficult transfer market this time around, said Mazzola. "But we are working hard.
"We are involved in talks with a number of players, but they are obviously all reliant on other things.
"We need to look carefully at what players we need to bring in and we are looking to strengthen the team in the right way."
One player that the Toro have been heavily linked with is Parma's young midfielder Marco Marchionni.
"We have a big interest in him," said Marchionni. "The player seemed open to the move but it depends on Parma.
"We do have alternatives, such as Manfredini, or players with similar characteristics.
"We'll see in the next few days how things go."
