Solskjaer has used the 21-year-old as a number nine since taking over at Old Trafford, where he has scored three times in his last four matches.
And the Norwegian thinks Rashford can develop his talent even further.
He said: "He's got frightening pace, he's now become stronger, he can hold the ball up for us and he's a great link player.
"He can become a top, top one. We can talk about Harry Kane and his class, and I'm sure Marcus has got the potential to get up there. He's been brought up here.
"There were a couple of sessions [while in Dubai] with the young kids, [Tahith] Chong, Angel [Gomes] and Jesse [Lingard], where they play together in a certain way. A very exciting player to work with."
