​Man Utd boss Solskjaer eyeing Gabriel as missing defensive piece

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign a centre-back this window.

The Red Devils are chasing after Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes, per the Evening Standard.

The source claims United see Gabriel as someone who can play next to Harry Maguire in a Premier League winning defence.

One of United's big issues is when they are attacked with pace, as both Maguire and Victor Lindelof are not the quickest.

Magalhaes, 22, is known for his speed, and is also left footed, which makes him an ideal partner for Maguire.

But the Brazilian is also wanted by Arsenal, Napoli and Everton.
