Alan Curbishley has said he would like to get involved in the transfer market again before it slams shut at the end of the month - and hinted the strikeforce might need some boosting.

He said: "Like everybody else we are trying to see if we can sign people but the hardest thing at the moment is to get somebody to say yes."

It's been well documented over in Italy and Spain that Edison Cavani is likely to be moving on, given that the Palermo bosses appear to favour other striking options, and West Ham are constantly linked.

However, the fee has often been a sticking point, with 12 million Euros a tad too much for clubs facing something of a recession in footballing terms.

Slow progress

So it appears negotiations over the striker, if any have taken place at all, might be struggling to progress.

Also, the fact that Chilean striker Sebastian Pinto is at the East End club for trials hints that the attacking force at West Ham might be an issue, with Curbs hinting as much:

"I'm hopeful one or two of the injured will be back in contention for Sunday's game at Manchester City and so we'll see, but we've got two weeks left before the window shuts and it will probably go right to the end for us."

Craig Bellamy appears permanently injured, Carlton Cole is never going to do enough to impress the Hammers boss, and Dean Ashton is the only regularly fit striker, so it makes sense someone else will come in to full the void.

Harry. Wes. You both don't know what you're talking about. It was ME that saved the team with that save in the last minute after YOU missed an open goal Wes, and YOU seemed to want to fall over Harry.

Come on boys, it's all about this Thursday now!
