Albion are set for another crack at landing a striker.

The emergency loan window opens on Tuesday and the Seagulls are still keen on signing an out-and-out front man to bolster their promotion push.

Boss Chris Hughton confirmed: “It’s an option for us, yes. We won’t shut our thinking at all once that opens.

“In the striking areas we have got Sam Baldock back training. James Wilson is improving with each week, getting used to the level, and with Bobby (Zamora) and Tomer (Hemed) as well we certainly have numbers.

“If there are any opportunities that we think can improve us then it is something we will look at but at the moment I’m delighted with the squad we’ve got.”

Albion added to their attacking options at the end of the January transfer window by capturing Czech international Jiri Skalak but he is a winger or number ten and will be given time to settle in.

The Argus revealed last week the Seagulls’ plan to borrow back Glenn Murray from Bournemouth in late February, which has been blocked by Cherries chief Eddie Howe.

Murray, replaced early in the second half of Saturday’s FA Cup win at Portsmouth, was an unused sub in Tuesday’s victory at Crystal Palace which eased Bournemouth’s Premier League relegation fears.

Meanwhile, Hughton has told The Argus third-choice goalkeeper Christian Walton and Luton target Glen Rea are both candidates to go back out on loan during the emergency window.
