Surely the final piece in Martin O'Neill's Aston Villa puzzle is another world-class striker to keep in-form goal-getter John Carew on his toes.
Reports this afternoon have linked O'Neill with a swoop for Porto ace Lisandro Lopez after the 25-year-old's contract talks with his new club stalled.
Of course O'Neill has been linked with every man and his dog since taking charge at Villa Park. But just incase here's a snippet of the Argentina international in action (apologies for the rambling foreign commentary):
The lightning quick manner in which Colombian Breidis Prescott dealt with Britain's 'brightest' boxing hope on Saturday night understandably raised doubts over a certain boy from Bolton.
As the boos rained down on Amir Khan (is it me or is booing more fashionable than ever before?) question marks were once again raised over the lightweight's chin.
So surely the glass-jawed let-down would give anything to have steel chops like these two scrappers.
