West Ham boss Slaven Bilic says he will not be rushed into buying a new striker just because he has money to spend.
Co-owner David Sullivan confirmed at the start of the summer that the Hammers boss has around £30m to spend on a new striker but Bilic claims the money is not burning a hole in his pocket and he will not spend it unless someone worth the money becomes available.
West Ham have been linked with a number of frontmen this summer, with top target Michy Batshuayi rejecting their advance to sign for Chelsea and both Arsenal and Liverpool also on the trail of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette.
Despite the money burning a hole in his pocket, Bilic is happy to bide his time.
“We are not desperate, we have good strikers,” he told Sky Sports.
“I’ve been saying that since day one, since the season had finished.
“Okay it’s not a secret that we are trying to get a striker but only if we can get a top striker.
“The reason we are not so desperate, that we do not panic, is because we have really good strikers.
“But if we can get one top striker we’d like to add to those we have already.”
