Paul Lambert is confident he can land more transfer targets before Norwich start their battle to stay in the Barclays Premier League - but will not pay "inflated" prices.
The Canaries boss has been proactive as he goes about strengthening the squad with the arrival of strikers James Vaughan and Steve Morison. Leeds midfielder Bradley Johnson is another said to be on the verge of a switch to Carrow Road, along with Brighton winger Elliott Bennett and Manchester United's Belgian defender Ritchie De Laet.
Lambert told talkSPORT: "It is tough to get lads. Where does the money stop or where do you actually start? I think the prices are really inflated. The money at the minute for transfer fees is out of control at times."
He added: "We can only do what we can do which I am totally at ease with.
"We will try to get lads to the football club that I think will go and compete with everybody else.
"We are close on a couple at the minute and we will try and get them in by the time we get the group back.
"By the time they come back altogether then they can get to know each other and hopefully integrate with the ones that are already there.
"We need half a dozen or so to come in and give us a hand."
