Fulham manager Martin Jol insists he will get the club's backing in the transfer market this month.
The Cottagers have been linked with a number of players in the transfer window, with the Dutch boss seemingly focused on strengthening his attack.
Catania striker Maxi Lopez is still thought to be a target, with the Italian outfit's asking price proving to be a stumbling block.
But with 11 days of the window remaining, Jol is confident chairman Mohamed Al Fayed will get his chequebook out if the price is right.
"We never have conversation about money," said Jol.
"If we come up with a good player, he will sign it off. If it is too expensive, we will have second thoughts about it.
"I have to say, he is always very positive and helpful.
"That is what he showed in the summer and just before the transfer window closed with Bryan Ruiz. I don't think there is any problem in that sense.
"If we come up with the right players, he will try to be helpful. He will back us.
"We are busy. It is not easy to get good players in this transfer window. But we have good players and if nothing changes we will be fine.
"We always look to strengthen the squad and every other team in Europe is doing the same."
QPR and Blackburn have approached Fulham about striker Andrew Johnson and, while there is also thought to be interest in Dickson Etuhu, Jol has no intention of selling the midfielder.
"I don't comment on that sort of thing because that is speculation," he added.
"Of course there are clubs trying to do things, to be better and improve their team.
"But I think it would not be right to help them, to put my players out on loan that could probably fill in here."
