Robinho believes Manchester City would be 'almost unbeatable' if the club sign Samuel Eto'o from Barcelona.
Eto'o is reportedly a target for City as the big-spending Premier League side look to add even more firepower to Mark Hughes' attack.
A deal has already been completed for Roque Santa Cruz, while Carlos Tevez is expected to arrive after his two-year loan at local rivals Manchester United expires.
And Robinho is hoping City boss Hughes can persuade Cameroon striker Eto'o to leave European champions Barcelona before the start of the new season.
"If Eto'o comes too he will add even more talent to the squad," Robinho told The Sun.
"We need four top-quality forwards because the season is so tough in England.
"I hope the club keep signing players with that quality. If so, we will be almost unbeatable."
He added: "A player like Santa Cruz is more than welcome and I've heard a deal for Carlos will be sorted very soon.
"That would be great because Tevez is a world-class talent and I would be happy to play alongside him.
"It is very good to know my club is going for top-quality players like these. Now I hope we can get Eto'o as well."
Brazil international Robinho, who was a club record signing from Real Madrid last year, also insists he is not concerned by the potential arrival of so many attacking players.
"Is the club chasing too many strikers? No, I don't think so - Manchester City wants to be among the top teams in the Premier League and in Europe," he continued.
"To do that they must have at least three or maybe four top-quality strikers.
"The season in England, with the league and the cups, all the games we play is very demanding.
"But I'm not scared of the competition. If Santa Cruz and Eto'o come to City, they are talented players and I will work as always to make sure of my spot in the team."
