LONDON: Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has admitted that he is considering bringing in new strikers in the upcoming transfer window in order to strengthen their goal-shy attack. 

United are struggling to score goals in the Premier League, with the striker duo of Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial hitting just six times so far in the season.

“We're always looking for solutions in the team, but we still have a good team and we can still score goals. I'm convinced of that. But we also need a little bit of luck,” Van Gaal was quoted as saying by goal.com.

Despite the Old Trafford club’s goal-scoring drought, the Dutchman insisted that those already in the team were good enough to succeed.

“It can be solved with money, but also on the training pitch. We're training, but scoring goals is a quality.

“We have that quality, but at this moment there's a lack of confidence at the right time or we need to buy another striker," Van Gaal added.

United have scored just 10 goals in their last 14 games in all competitions.
