“We’re always looking at chances to improve the squad,” he said.
“With Marcus out for a while we have to look at it closely.”
Solskjaer also spoke to BBC Radio 5 Live following the 2-0 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield, with the United boss opening up about the impact of Rashford’s injury on his squad.
“It happened against Wolverhampton. He will be out for normally about six weeks before you can get going,” he said.
“You don’t want to have your best players injured, but you can never ever protect yourself against them.
“Of course he is vital for us, it might open up a loan deal or two, a short-term deal, because it is an important player.
“We will keep on working.”
