I am at the start of second season with Norwich. I just avoided relegation last season due to a lack of goals (33).

I have added creativity to my midfield but I am desperately needing a new goalscorer to put the chances away.

My team just now is:

Keepers: Ruddy; Rudd; Rossi
Fullbacks: Vrsaljko; Garrido; Trippier; Olsson
Centrebacks: Munoz; Bennett; Boyata; Turner
Defensive mids: Tetty; Johnson; Margia; McGeehan
Attacking mids: Howson; Carroll; McEachran; Afellay
Wingers: Redmond; Snodgrass; Joshua Murphy; Jacob Murphy
Stikers: Hooper; Abel Hernandez

I have had bids accepted for Iago Aspas (2 goals 1 assist in 19 games for Liverpool last season) for £3.6M and Paulo Dybala (20 goals in 35 games for Palermo in Serie B last season) for £4.6M. Which one should I take or are there any other suggestions for around the same sort of money?
You'd probably want Timo Werner if you are looking for a goalscorer. I think he plays for Schalke. But out of those two, the best would be Dybala if he is on form for Palermo.
Try having a look at last season's PL top goalscorers and see if there is anyone on there for a decent price, maybe you can find a gem in there that can score you a few goals over the season.
Usually these are a safer bet because they are ready adapted to the division.

Also have you considered changing mentalities slightly? Maybe playing your wingers as inside forwards and having a couple DLP's feeding them? This will make it as if you have three strikers, but two of them track back and do more of the defensive side on the wings.

Finally, you could get the team to try to work the ball into the box, and then tell your front three to shoot less often. As weird as this seems, your strikers will pass it around rather than having a shot on goal, trying to get a better chance to score.

Can be frustrating at times but will more than likely bag you a few more goals as there will be less pot shots and more in positions that are a better chance of scoring.

Hopefully this helps a little mate :) Good luck in the next season
Mate , try Rickie Lambert , he scored 27 goals in my 1st season with Soton , he never miss a penalty , is a clinical finsher , good header .
Also i really like Charlie Austin for QPR , he is young , really great finisher , good pace , also he is quite young . Good luck
