Manchester United are leading Arsenal and Manchester City in the race to sign West Ham youngster Reece Oxford, according to report.
Wenger is reportedly interested in the midfielder and is weighing up whether to submit an official bid for the 17 year old this summer but it seems Wenger now has to fight serious competition from rival clubs should he decide to sign the midfielder.
According to ESPN via Football Transfer Tavern, Man Utd are at the fore front of clubs chasing the midfielder and are prepared to submit a bid of more than £10m for the player’s services.
The defender has about two years left in his contract at East London, although the Hammers are not willing to sell, they could be forced to cash in on the player should he continue to reject a new deal with the club.
The player’s ability to slot effortlessly into center defense has impressed Wenger and the French man is a fan of versatile players.
Oxford is being regarded as one of the best players in his generation, hence the reason big clubs are queueing up for his signature.
Oxford made 7 Premier League appearances for West Ham since making his debut against Arsenal last year.
