Manchester United have had a disastrous campaign so far and is currently going through a period of transition after the recent sacking of Jose Mourinho. Ole Gunnar Solskjær has come in to replace the Portuguese manager on an interim basis and has done well to turn things around against Cardiff City on Saturday. 

The Red Devils put in their best performance of this campaign on their way to destroying the Bluebirds with a 5-1 scoreline yesterday. However, with the transfer window set to reopen at the start of next month, the new United boss needs to sit and jot down a list of targets for the upcoming window.

Here are three players Solskjær should consider signing next month to improve his squad going into the second half of this season.

Marco Verratti

The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder has been an ever-present feature in Thomas Tuchel’s midfield this season and has excelled as a creative force at the centre of the park. Although Verratti has built a reputation as a world-class defensive midfielder, he has also developed a knack for scoring and creating important goals which makes him an attractive option for Solskjær.

James Tarkowski

The English centre-back has already put in some commanding displays at the back for Burnley this season. He is also an aerial threat at both ends of the pitch. The 26-year-old was born in Manchester and would be an intelligent addition to the United backline if the Red Devils end up opting for his services.

Tarkowski has made 20 appearances for the Clarets this term and has three goals to his name so far across multiple competitions. He will be a perfect partner for Chris Smalling and would give the likes of Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones a run for their money in the battle to secure a regular starting berth under Solskjær.

Krzysztof Piatek

The Polish forward has been in sensational form for Genoa this season after scoring a hatful of goals for them so far. Piatek has found the back of the net 20 times in 19 appearances for the Serie A outfit in all competitions which includes his four-goal haul in the Coppa Italia against Lecce. He will add more competition for the likes of Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku which is why Solskjær should consider snapping him up during the January transfer window.
