Arsenal are interested in signing West Ham defender Reece Oxford, according to reports.
Wenger is believed to be a fan of the youngster and has been monitoring his situation at West Ham since he made his senior debut in August 2015.
West Ham are reluctant to let the 17-year-old leave the club and have offered him a new deal. However, the player is stalling on agreeing a contract extension with the Hammers and Arsenal have been alerted by his situation.
According to Goal, Arsenal are not alone in the race to sign the youngster as Manchester United and Manchester City are also monitoring his situation.
Oxford is highly rated in England and is seen as one of the best talents in the country as was evident in the lucrative contract he signed with Nike a few days ago.
The defender has the ability to also play in Midfield and West Ham believe he can become a key player for them in the future.
Should the youngster decide that West Ham is not the right place to continue his development, Arsenal would make a move to sign him but will have to battle United and City for the youngster’s signature.
Wenger is known for working well with young players as in the case of Alex Iwobi and that could give Arsenal the edge over its rivals.
