Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio has made signing a new striker a priority this summer. The Black Cats have relied to a certain extent on Steven Fletcher's goalscoring abilities for much of the season, with the Scot supplying 11 of the 41 league goals scored by the Black Cats.

"We need to bring in quality, particularly up front, because to win games you need to score and we don't score many goals," the Italian said.

"We don't have many weapons in our side at the moment to damage the opponent."
