Manchester United and rivals interested in Reece Oxford

Football News

Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City are all interested in talented youngster Reece Oxford, with the former expected to press ahead with an £8 million bid in the January transfer window. 

This has been reported by The Times, who claim that the Red Devils are prepared to step up their interest in the West Ham United prospect by making a bid next month. 

Oxford, 16, is recognised as one of the most exciting fresh talents in the Premier League, so it's not entirely surprising that the big boys are snooping around him at this stage.

That's right, despite The Times claiming that the Hammers are determined to keep him, City, Chelsea and Liverpool are all keen on his signature as they go in search of adding home-grown players to their squads. 

It appears, though, that United could take the lead on this one. £8 million is a huge sum to pay for a player who has only made three Premier League appearances, but Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal is certainly an advocate for the promotion of youth. 

Since taking over at Old Trafford, the likes of Paddy McNair, Jesse Lingard, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Co. have featured under the Dutchman's regime. 

Transfer battle 

But this saga may not come to an end next month. The report claims that the Irons are expected to reject United's advances, which could lead to a transfer battle in the summer window. 

One thing is for sure, with United, City, Liverpool and Chelsea interested in the young English defender, West Ham have got their work cut out to keep him at the club for the long-term.
