David Moyes insists that Manchester United do not need to bolster their striking options in the January transfer window.

The Red Devils’ activity in the mid-season window is likely to come under intense scrutiny after a disappointing summer ended in Moyes only being able to bring in Marouane Fellaini from Everton.

United have been linked with a number of strikers in recent days, including Monaco’s Radamel Falcao and Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa.

But the Scot feels that he already has more than enough options available to him at Old Trafford.

“I would not say we are in desperate need of an out-and-out centre-forward,” Moyes said.

“We have got Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Chicharito [Javier Hernández], Danny Welbeck. Shinji [Kagawa] can play in behind as well, we are covered.

“It is easy for people to throw names up, but when they look at it more closely you might say it wasn’t that good a suggestion.”
