Newcastle United would love to sign a striker before the transfer window closes on September 2.
With Europe's richest clubs prepared to spend astronomical amounts to sign players, teams with tighter budgets often struggle to find value in the market, as Newcastle manager Alan Pardew told Sky Sports:
It's important we get another striker in.
It's always frustrating in the transfer market but we've got a strong squad and we did some business last January which put us in good fettle because the six months of experience they got will stand them in good stead.
I think the figures the top clubs are paying out is ridiculous. We can't compete with them on a financial level so we have to be as clever and shrewd as we can, and get players in of the same quality but for a lot less money.
Since the prolific Demba Ba was sold to Chelsea before the 2012/13 season, the Magpies have struggled to replace him up front.
While the highest-profile names might be out of reach for Pardew, here are a handful of useful forwards who might be worth looking at.
