Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is interesting in bringing Krylia Sovetov striker Aleksandr Sobolev to Old Trafford, according to reports. 

The Red Devils manager is under pressure with his side struggling for wins and goals at the start of the season.

United have netted just seven goals in their last nine matches in all competitions and have won just four of 10 matches.

Solskjaer has only Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood as players who can play as a central striker after selling Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan.

Lukaku departed Old Trafford for the San Siro in August.

Rashford has just netted once since hitting a brace in the opening day thrashing of Chelsea, while Martial has had his injury problems and Greenwood is just 18.

This has The Sun reporting that the Old Trafford side are keen on adding more firepower and that their scouts have their eye on Sobolev.

At just 22, the forward has hit the back of the net nine times in the Russian Premier League this term.

It’s claimed that the Premier League giants also have their eye on Mario Mandzukic, Callum Wilson and Moussa Dembele.

But with a reported valuation of £15million, Sobolev, who has represented his country at Under-21 level, could prove a shrewd investment.
