Solskjaer admits Manchester United need ‘two or three players’ in January

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Manchester United will be active in the January transfer window with the club targeting ‘two or three players’ to bolster their squad next month.

United currently sit fifth in the Premier League and will look to aid their pursuit of Champions League qualification by adding some new faces during the winter window, the club believed to be keen to add two new midfield players and an additional forward.

Leicester’s James Maddison, Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho and RB Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haaland are rumoured to be among Manchester United‘s primary targets, though the latter is attracting plenty of attention from elsewhere, Bundesliga duo Borussia Dortmund and Salzburg’s sister club RB Leipzig said to be among the frontrunners.

Solskjaer has confirmed the Red Devils will be looking to strengthen in the January window, admitting that he will be targeting ‘two or three’ additions as he looks to address the imbalances in his current squad.

“We’re looking to strengthen in many positions,” Solskjaer told the media following their 4-0 win over AZ Alkmaar.

“If you look at our squad compared to others we’re getting there but we need two or three players to have a squad with enough numbers to rotate throughout a long season and we’ll see what we sign.”

United return to Premier League action this weekend when they face Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Solskjaer’s side will be looking to continue the momentum from their recent wins over Tottenham and Manchester City, the club currently five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea ahead of this weekends fixtures.
