That's according to The Express, who believe Solskjaer is in the market for an attacking midfielder, a defender and a striker.
In terms of attacking midfield options, Jack Grealish is the obvious candidate after being linked for months, but Ajax's Donny van de Beek is also mentioned.
United are also keen on adding another defender to the ranks. Aston Villa's Tyrone Mings gets a mention as well as Swansea centre-back Joe Rodon and AC Milan's Alessio Romagnoli.
In addition to an attacking midfielder and a defender, Solskjaer also reportedly wants a striker to compete with the likes of Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood.
Lyon striker Moussa Dembele continues to be linked with a transfer to Old Trafford, and Erling Haaland once again gets a mention.
