Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway is shocked by the asking prices for his transfer targets this summer.
Holloway remains desperate to add to his promoted squad before the transfer deadline falls.
He told the Croydon Advertiser: "It is a ridiculous amount of money that we need to spend, just to compete.
"Some of these clubs have had Champions League money for years, which means they are way ahead of everyone else.
"Chelsea have signed two players for £50m, it looks like Man City have near enough spent another £100m. How can we compete with that?"
