Crystal Palace chief Phil Alexander admits they're in the market for a new striker.

West Bromwich Albion attacker Peter Odemwingie has been linked with Palace.

Alexander said: "We did have an injury to Glenn Murray at the back end of last season and he was our top goalscorer so it's pretty clear that we need a centre-forward and probably two or three more to add to the squad.

"We're in no major rush, we've got some good targets, Ian's done a lot of homework in terms of what players are available and we're now talking to various agents, talking to other clubs and going through that process.

"We've got a budget in mind, it would be daft to give out numbers but we've worked out the budget.

"We've looked at the income streams and we'll manage the club the best we can, going forward without taking any risks."
