Nathan Ellington might be the new kid on the block at The Hawthorns, but West Bromwich Albion manager Bryan Robson is looking to any one of his five strikers to grab the headlines.
After completing the #3 million signing of Ellington from Wigan Athletic, Robson said: "What I'm looking for is for someone to be outstanding.
"I need one of our boys to get into that type of form and I'm not bothered which one it is."
It had been mooted that Ellington's arrival might have moved one of Robson's other four strikers so far down the pecking order that they may look for pastures new.
Captain Kevin Campbell apart, it will certainly lessen the first team chances of one or more of Kanu, Geoff Horsfield and Rob Earnshaw. But Robson argues that he is going to need them all.
"You look to rotate your strikers to a certain degree," he said. "After all, at certain times during the season I'll be playing 4-3-3 and therefore all the strikers will come into play.
"Nathan gives us another dimension up-front and I have spoken to them all and told them they'll play their part, but sometimes I'm going to disappoint them, like Geoff Horsfield who did not even make the bench on Saturday.
" But, while thate that competition for places is good, I need someone to become outstanding, who will be in the team every week.
"You're not going to leave a Ruud van Nistelrooy or a Thierry Henry out of your team.
"If they're putting the ball in the back of the net every week they'll be in, because noone can have any complaints.
"I need one of our boys to get into that type of form and I'm not bothered which one it is - Horsfield, Kanu, Campbell, Earnie or Ellington."
After putting pen to paper on a four-year deal, Ellington explained the reasoning behind moving to The Hawthorns so soon after last term's 24 goals had fired Premiership new boys Wigan to the top flight.
Ellington, who still had 11 months left on his contract at the JJB Stadium, said: "When you want to further your career, then it's got to happen.
"Once I was informed West Brom were in for me, I thought it was a move in the right direction.
"No disrespect to Wigan, but I just think West Brom are a bigger club.
"Albion are one year ahead in terms of football. They've already stayed up and are looking to kick on from there whereas Wigan are just looking to stay up.
"And I thought playing for a manager like Bryan Robson would be great."
His first appearance in Albion colours should come against Portsmouth in Saturday's home campaign opener at The Hawthorns.
Ellington has been known to Albion fans since his hattrick put a Baggies reserve team out of the Worthington Cup in October 2002. But he perhaps redressed the balance in the fans' minds with the two goals back in January which provided Albion's chief rivals Wolves with their only league defeat since Glenn Hoddle took charge.
Meanwhile, Albion defender Thomas Gaardsoe has received a surprise Denmark call-up for tomorrow night's friendly against England in Copenhagen.
Having so far played only as a substitute in two away games for his country, the 25-year-old stands by for his home international debut.
Sven-Goran Eriksson's England card ought to be marked that so far Gaardsoe has proved a lucky charm for the Danes. His international debut in November 2003 came in Denmark's 3-2 friendly victory over England at Old Trafford and he even came off the bench to score for his country in a 5-1 win in Poland last August.
