The Canaries finished in a very creditable 11th place last term and have already added Sporting Lisbon striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel to their ranks, with the 24-year-old agreeing the move back in March.
Hughton admits he is excited to work with the Dutchman, who will officially join the club on July 1.
"That is something that we have been looking forward to from the day we signed him and he is player that even though we had signed him and he had to complete his season at Sporting Lisbon, he still managed to score goals," He told Sky Sports News.
"He is very excited by the prospect and we look forward to seeing him."
On the matter of bringing new players to Carrow Road who he feels can enhance his current group, the 54-year-old admits that competing against the other Premier League teams for a limited pool of available stars is no easy task.
"It's our responsibility to try and work as hard as we can which is what we are trying to do," he added.
"It is not always easy as there are 19 other teams in this division trying to do the same, but hopefully we are successful in some of the work we do.
"We are delighted how we finished and there's no doubt we have a good and competitive squad but if we can add to it then it will be beneficial to us."
