Mark Hughes is likely to find this summer testing his patience in a bid to land the players he wants to strengthen his Blackburn Rovers squad.
Sparky's number one target reamins Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy but until Rafa Benitez completes his summer spending we won't know whether he is available or not.
Hughes will use most of his summer transfer budget on strengthening his strike-force, and the club accept they may have to dig deep to land the calibre of player they are looking for.
Chairman John Williams said: 'I think it's an open secret that we'd like another striker at the club and strikers don't usually come cheap.
'You are less likely to unearth an absolutely unheard of gem up front than you are perhaps in the back four, and Chris Samba comes to mind when I say that.
'The reality is if you are going to spend serious money then you have to be absolutely certain it's the right man to come to Ewood.
'You have to make sure the guy is right for the club, and vice versa.
Hughes is happy with the general make-up of his squad but he believes the signing of a top-line striker will enable Rovers to push for a top-six spot next season.
Now I for one agree that this is the right approach, if we get to the end of the transfer window and are still in possession of Morten Gamst and Benni McCarthy then it has been a successful transfer window from our point of view.
As Rovers fans we are use to not spending till later on in the Summer, in fact the majority of the best deals have been done towards the very end of the window.
Sit tight lads... it could be a long one.
