Arsenal plan special deal for Reece Oxford

Published Add your comment

Arsenal want to bring West Ham United youngster Reece Oxford to the Emirates, according to The Daily Mail. 

Oxford, who is just 15-years-old, has already played at Under 16 level for England, and has trained with the Hammers' first-team. 

The 6ft 3 centre-back has already starred at U-15, U-16 and U-18 level for West Ham, and the club will be desperate to keep him as he continues to progress.

However, the report has suggested that the Gunners are ready to make the youngster a special offer that will look into the possibility of handing him a deal that turns into a professional contract on the day of his 17th birthday. 

It may well be a couple of years yet until Oxford bursts onto the Premier League scene, however it appears that Arsenal are ready to take him away from Upton Park in the near future. 

Arsenal boss Wenger has a proven track record with youth stars, having already helped the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Jack Wilshere progress their careers.
