Sunderland boss Di Canio: I want a top striker

Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio admits he's in the market for a top striker.

Sunderland made a shock enquiry for Napoli star Edinson Cavani a fortnight ago.

And Di Canio told Absolute Radio: "Absolutely, obviously the picture in front of me is clear. But tonight I am going to have dinner with my chairman and we have to go through quickly because in a normal situation, normally you are going to start thinking about the New Year in March you know or even in February or January sometimes.

"So now it is not late but we need top scorer, like Ian Wright, because otherwise it is difficult to score a goal. I don't want to say that every game you must create 10 chances, but you must have a player that is able to take their chances on goal. "

Di Canio was speaking to Ian Wright of Absolute Radio Rock n' Roll Football. Saturday's from 5pm. For more, visit
