Solskjaer wants four more signings in key positions to strengthen this summer

It appears that Manchester United are close to confirming their second signing of the summer.

Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka looks set to join the Reds after a £50m was finally agreed (BBC), with a medical due imminently. Wan-Bissaka follows Welshman Daniel James who joined from Swansea earlier this summer.

According to Guardian reporter Jamie Jackson, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is far from content with just these deals and has targeted four more key positions of weakness.

Jackson says Solskjaer wants a centre-back, another full-back, a midfielder and a striker this summer.

Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire is said to be an option in defence, an area United must prioritise this window. The Reds cannot afford another summer relying on the likes of Chris Smalling and injury-prone Phil Jones.

A striker could come in as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who has already expressed his desire to leave Old Trafford this summer. The report suggests United may have to wait on the sale of stars such as Lukaku to fund further moves to strengthen this summer.

It is still unclear which midfielder the Reds are looking to sign this summer but this is another key area which must be addressed with the impending departure of Ander Herrera and the potential exit of Paul Pogba. Many Reds would love to see Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes move to Old Trafford amid strong links to the Portuguese star, but no deal has yet been agreed.
