I started to manage dortmund yesterday and I need to help my formation is 4-2-3-1 and I haven't any strikers I have lewandowski and zidan but I want a 3 strikers have u any idea my transfer budget is 2.6 m €
Whom else do you have? (in particular who are the three preferred attacking mids) What type of forward are you looking for?
No I dont want amc I want 2 target man and 1 complete forward
I mean, if you're playing 4-2-3-1, who are the 3 that you have now? That may help determine who a sensible forward choice would be (which I'll leave to others). You still have Sigurdsson?
My line up is GK:Weidenfeller DL:Schmelzer DC:Subotic,Hummels DR:Pisczek MC:Ilkay Gundogan,Bender AMC:Kagawa,Gotze,Perisic ST Lewandowski I need 2 target man and 1 complete forward can u understand that
I like Klose for the complete-forward role, but of course by now he's rather older and has moved on to Lazio from Germany.

I remember reading an article that regarded Peniel Mlapa as a promising target type, but can't say I've seen him making much impact in my FM forays. Leverkusen's Derdiyok is good, as of course is Bayern's Gomez, but those would be hard to get. I think Kalinic is potentially quite a good player, he fell afoul of playing in the wrong place at the wrong time (Blackburn) but might be worth an adventure.
I started a Dortmund save yesterday and faced the same problem.

I managed to sell a player I dont remember for about 500k, I asked for an increase of wage budget (after about a month elapsed) and got the following players:

Sanogo loan
Araujo loan (Boca Juniors)
Carlos Diogo free (retraining him for dm position as the budget is tight and squad is small)

Be patient. The time will pass quicker than you think and soon you ll get most injured players back (especially Barrios).

If you want an alternative approach forget buying forwards and get defensive/mf people in such as toloi, kara and Yttegard Jensen (all with instalments) and use gotze and grosskreutz as poachers/target men till you get people back. They are such good players that they will be more than adequate in that position.
Or get Necid from CSKA... The wage should be below 20K/week, and the transfer fee isn't spectacular...

Also, why don't you play Perišić as a trequarista up front, with someone next to him...
