Jermain Defoe was their main man last season, but Niall Quinn thinks Sunderland need to sign another forward this summer.
The Black Cats appointed David Moyes on a four-year deal on Saturday after Sam Allardyce was confirmed as the new England manager.
Former Sunderland striker Quinn, who was chairman of the club between 2006 and 2011, believes Moyes’ first task at the Stadium of Light is to find support for Defoe.
“Relying on Jermain Defoe to keep Sunderland in the league or indeed push up the league, I don’t think they can go through the year with just that,” Quinn told Sky Sports News HQ.
“I think it would be encouraging if Sunderland were to sign another proven goalscorer.”
