Report: Manchester United want West Ham teenagers Reece Oxford and Martin Samuelsen

Manchester United are reportedly keen on West Ham duo Reece Oxford and Martin Samuelsen.

According to a report from The Sun, Manchester United are believed to be interested in signing West Ham United duo Reece Oxford and Martin Samuelsen.

The Red Devils still don't appear to be sure who their manager will be next season, but regardless of what the future holds for manager Louis van Gaal, new signings will be needed this summer.

After limited returns from signing veterans like Radamel Falcao, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Victor Valdes under Van Gaal's reign, United may instead look to sign young players for the future, especially after superb performances from youngsters like Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Marcus Rashford in recent weeks.

Now, The Sun report that United have turned their attentions to West Ham United's teenage duo Reece Oxford and Martin Samuelsen.

Oxford, 17, hit the headlines on the opening weekend of the season by impressing in a starting role against Arsenal, and whilst he has been kept on the fringes of the side for most of the campaign, the teenager is certainly one of English football's brightest young players.

Capable of playing at centre back or in holding midfield, Oxford has displayed great maturity whenever he has played, but West Ham would surely be reluctant to sell their top young talent.

Meanwhile, playmaker Samuelsen joined the Hammers from Manchester City last summer, and has earned rave reviews for his performances in West Ham's development squad and out on loan at League One side Peterborough United.

The 19-year-old Norwegian has impressed with his superb technique and silky skills, so it's no wonder United would be interested and have been scouting him of late - but again, he wouldn't come cheap given how he's been touted as a star of the future in East London.
