The Red Devils have been short of attacking options following an injury to striker Marcus Rashford which could keep him out of action until May.
Manchester United have enquired Leicester City about the availability of striker Islam Slimani amid reports that the Red Devils want to secure the loan signing of the Algerian in January.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is facing a crisis in the club’s attacking department after the long-term injury suffered by in-form striker Marcus Rashford earlier this month.
The 22-year-old England international, who has been the top-scorer for United with 14 league goals this season, suffered a lower back injury during his side’s victory in the FA Cup third round over Wolves.
And with reports claiming that Rashford could be out of action until May, United might be forced to look for options in the ongoing January transfer window.
