Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Manchester United to sign Juventus veteran Mario Mandzukic and FC Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele in the January transfer window, according to a report in England.

The Independent is reporting that the Manchester United manager is determined to improve the level of the Red Devils squad following a disappointing start to the season.

The same article states that Solskjaer is eager to improve his attack after recent injuries to Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial depleted his options up front.

According to the same story, Solskjaer spoke with the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward about January signings after their 2-0 loss to West Ham United in the English capital on Sunday.

The report goes on to add that Manchester United are ready to sign Mandzukic despite ultimately deciding to give the 33-year-old a miss in the summer due to his age.

The Independent adds that the Red Devils are considering a move for French forward Dembele, although Manchester United would have to spend more than £100m to sign the former Dortmund star.

Manchester United opted to sell Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku to Serie A side Inter Milan in the summer before Alexis Sanchez followed his team-mate to the San Siro on loan.

The Red Devils – who host Arsenal on Monday night – have won two of their opening six Premier League games.
