Solskjaer, after the Europa League defeat of AZ Alkmaar, had suggested there could be a number of major arrivals next month.
However, Solskjaer then clarified those comments ahead of Sunday's Everton clash but did hint at the possible arrival of quick fix options.
He said: ''I didn't say January did I? I said going forward.
''Targets that we're looking at, they're long-term targets. If there's something popping up that might be as a short-term, maybe. But we're always thinking long-term.''
