Who can we sign in January? We're now being linked with the 34-year-old Diego Milito from Inter, but this would be a risk with his injury record. On the domestic front several strikers might be available. Here are a few possible targets:
JERMAIN DEFOE: Not a regular starter at Spurs, knows where the net is and claims to still love West Ham despite us calling him a 'Short Paul Ince'. Needs a move to get World Cup place.
NIKICA JELAVIC: Looked brilliant two seasons ago, but now out of the side at Everton. Top striker at Rangers too.
DEMBA BA: Not trusted by the Special One so might favour a loan move to get a game.
SHANE LONG: Silly money might tempt West Brom as they almost sold him in the summer. Brilliant goal against Villa will have added a few million to his price.
PETER CROUCH: Might welcome a return to London and fits Big Sam's height requirement, while also being skilful on the ground. Stoke would be unlikely to sell without a replacement though.
DIMITAR BERBATOV: Unhappy at Fulham. Fancy Dan but undoubted quality. Might fancy playing for a passionate crowd.
SHOLA AMEOBI: Underrated 32-year-old Newcastle striker out of contract in the summer. Could do a job as the big man up front. And Pards says he is clever enough to be Prime Minister.
NIKLAS BENDTNER: Despite comedy image does score regularly for Denmark and would benefit from first-team football. Has a point to prove as well as Paddy Power underpants.
JORDAN RHODES: Big scorer in the Championship and Blackburn have huge financial problems and need to cut the wage bill under the Fair play regulations so may be tempted.
DANNY INGS: Scoring for Burnley and if a flop would at least allow us to say 'Ings Can Only Get Better'.
