Everton boss David Moyes is desperate to find himself a new striker signing.
The Toffees have been terrible in front of goal this term with strikers Yakubu, Louis Saha and Jermaine Beckford rustling up just FIVE goals between them so far.
Moyes is going to dip into the loan market next month to try to improve his side's dreadful finishing record.
But he admits that finding a goal-hungry striker lurking around is almost impossible.
He has not given up entirely on the idea of American hitman Landon Donovan returning to Goodison Park on another loan deal after last season's successful three-month spell.
Moyes said: "In this transfer window there will not be enough to pick and choose from.
"You might have to take what you can if you need something.
"You can't say 'that is the one I want' because clubs don't let centre-forwards out on loan unless they are surplus."
