Arsenal hero, Paul Merson has urged Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to make three signings before Friday’s transfer deadline.

According to Merson, Solskjaer’s side need an attacking midfielder, a forward and a defender to bolster their squad in the second half of the season.

He said this ahead of Man United’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg tie against Manchester City on Wednesday night.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Merson said: “I worry for Solskjaer. I think he’s a sitting duck.

“I say that because I’m thinking about the Bruno Fernandes deal and what the people upstairs might be thinking.

“I think he does tick the boxes. They need an attacking midfielder, a forward, a defender… I’m not being disrespectful but they need quite a few players! They certainly haven’t got the player to put the ball through the eye of a needle.

“But will Solskjaer be there next season? It’s a difficult one.

“They need to strengthen in all areas. They’re a million miles behind. I watched them against Burnley and I felt uncomfortable.

“This is Manchester United. The fear factor is gone.”

Man United are currently in fifth place on the Premier League table with six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
