Norwich boss Chris Hughton is desperate to have a proven Premier League goal scorer in his ranks and according to the Daily Mail, the Canaries boss has spoken to Chief Executive David McNally for funds in January.
The team find themselves 5 points above the relegation zone, having scored just 8 goals in 11 games this term. Hughton is looking to acquire either Marouane Chamakh from Arsenal or Carlton Cole from West Ham United in order to provide his strike force a necessary boost and to ensure that his team can avoid the relegation scrap as the season moves forward.
Cole has found it hard to find the net for his team since their return to top flight football. West Ham seem to be doing fairly well despite the striker's lack of form, and given his relegation to the bench following the arrival of Andy Carroll, they may be willing to sell him at the right price. Chamakh, on the other hand, has dropped down in the pecking order at the Emirates and his departure is imminent.
The important question is whether Hughton has sufficient funds to make a move for the players. While Chamakh is likely to be a lot cheaper than Cole, his wages are likely to be a lot higher.
The club is in desperate need to find a quality striker that can either replace or alleviate pressure from Grant Holt and it'll be interesting to see how the former Newcastle United boss works his way through this dilemma.
