Table-topping Manchester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson is determined to bring in a replacement for injured striker Valeri Bojinov, who will be out for at least five months after suffering cruciate knee ligament damage.

Aside from £8million new-boy Rolando Bianchi, Eriksson has only last season´s mis-firing quartet of Georgios Samaras, Bernardo Corradi, Darius Vassell and Paul Dickov to call on ahead of Saturday´s trip to Arsenal. And, as he is also lacking midfield options, Eriksson is keen to do some more shopping ahead of the August 31 transfer deadline.

"Work is going on in the office," he told the club website mcfc.co.uk. "We didn´t want to have to do it but we have to look carefully at the situation because when you have a player who needs this kind of operation and rehabilitation, you can never be sure how long it takes to come back."
