Manchester United put together a three-man shortlist as they look to sign a new striker in January, according to a report.

Manchester United will reportedly attempt to bring a new striker to the club during the January transfer window.

Anthony Martial's return to fitness has eased United's problems in the final third of the field, but the team are still light in attack following the summer departures of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.

According to the London Evening Standard, a new forward remains a priority for the club in January, and head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been working with his recruitment team to identify a three-man shortlist.

The report claims that Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland, who continues to be strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford, is being considered by the Red Devils as a potential arrival.

Meanwhile, it is alleged that RB Leipzig's Timo Werner and Bournemouth's Callum Wilson are also targets for the 20-time English champions ahead of the opening of the winter window.

The Red Devils have won five of their last six matches in all competitions after a tough start to the campaign and will be looking for a third straight victory away to Sheffield United on Sunday afternoon.
