A lot of talk this summer has been about possible world record transfer fees and the possible multi-million pound deals for the likes of Luis Suarez and Wayne Rooney.
But surely the top clubs should be looking for less expensive players, who have a goalscoring pedigree in the Premier League, and could be bought for a fraction of the price.
Both Christian Benteke at Aston Villa and Michu at Swansea have had excellent starts to their Premier League careers scoring goals galore and they both have qualities that could strengthen any club in the league, including those challenging for the title.
Instead many of the top clubs have decided to look elsewhere for more experienced players but these strikers are worth a risk.
Look at Daniel Sturridge at Liverpool - he has started the season in prolific goal scoring form and he could prove to be one of the bargain buys for many a year after his move from Chelsea last season.
Villa and Swansea would obviously be reluctant to sell their star players, even if they received a very tantalising offer, as both players have been responsible for many of the points won by their teams with their important strikes.
Yes they are not experienced strikers in the Premier League but already Benteke has proven this season that he is no one-season wonder. Both he and Michu have great potential and to me seem a risk worth taking.
The problem with the top clubs such as Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United is that they want players who are proven, lessening the risk to their title challenge with their easily transferrable skills.
For clubs like Tottenham and Arsenal, who wish to break into this elite group of clubs, surely a risk on these players is worth the potential gains.
I am sure both Christian Benteke and Michu will continue to score frequently this season and possibly leave bigger clubs regretting not trying to sign them.
