Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly targeting two more signings for Manchester United before the ongoing summer transfer window shuts.

The Red Devils have already brought in Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Tom Heaten, but Solskjaer wants to continue building his squad.

According to The Telegraph, the 48-year-old wants to sign a new striker and a midfielder before the 31st August deadline.

The report claims that despite having Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood fully fit, Solskjaer would not turn down the chance to sign another striker. United have also been linked with a move for Wolves' midfielder, Ruben Neves, who would cost them around £40m to lure to Old Trafford.

The Premier League giants were also linked with a move for Atletico Madrid's Kieran Trippier, but Diego Simeone's side have refused to budge from the England international's £50m release clause.

The England international would provide additional competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, but United are unlikely to meet his asking price considering he turns 31 in September.

Solskjaer's side are looking to sell players before the window shuts so as to raise funds to bring in new faces. Jesse Lingard is one of the many names linked with an exit, but the United boss insisted that the 28-year-old remains part of his plans this season.

“Jesse’s first priority is to get into our team. I think we together can have great moments,” he said.

"Of course, as a manager, it’s difficult to say that this weekend you’re not playing.

“I’ve got to leave players out from the squad as well as the starting XI, but they all need to remember they will all play a part if we are going to be successful. Jesse is back to his fitness and has come back bubbly and in good shape, so he has a good part to play.”
