Paul Scholes thinks Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil would be the ideal signing for Manchester United to make in the “short-term”.

The Red Devils have struggled for goals this season with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side only bagging ten in nine Premier League games this term, while they sit 14th in the standings.

On Thursday night, Anthony Martial’s first-half spot-kick helped United finally end an 11-match winless run on the road with a 1-0 Europa League win against Partizan Belgrade.

And speaking after the match Scholes recommended Ozil – who is out of the picture at Arsenal – as exactly what United are looking for in the “short-term”.

“Man Utd could do with someone like Ozil who can link a team together,” Scholes explained to BT Sport.

“[He is] a player who can link teams together. He has got great quality, he’s shown that in his career.

“He could be an answer short-term, I don’t know. I think that would be up to him, ultimately.

“I can’t [see it happening], but he’s the type of player, short-term, who United could do with.”
