Manchester United Football Club have impressed in fits and spurts this season, though amongst the glaring needs has been a real issue to stick the ball in the back of the net.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will know that the problem started when he took the decision to let both Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez leave without replacing them. Well, he could well atone for that error during the mid-season window…
The story comes from ESPN, who writes that United are considering a January move for the 33-year-old ex-Premier League striker, Edin Dzeko.
Dzeko is currently plying his trade for AS Roma in the Serie A, after the club have identified the need for experience and reinforcements.
Despite the recent form of both Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, coupled with the emergence of Mason Greenwood, the Reds are still looking to add a proven goalscorer.
Dzeko has scored 93 goals in under 200 appearances for his current club, while he also has five years of Premier League football under his belt with City.
Due to his age, the Bosnian should be relatively cheap, though prising him away from Roma may well be easier said than done. In terms of short-term fixes, there are certainly worse options out there…
