According to Sky Sports, newly-promoted Bundesliga side RB Leipzig have made an offer to West Ham United teenager Reece Oxford.

One of Germany's most hated clubs due to their mass spending in recent years, RB Leipzig have won promotion to the Bundesliga for the first time - and are looking to splash the cash again.

Part of Red Bull's football arm along with Red Bull Salzburg and Red Bull New York, Leipzig have collected top young talents like Marcel Sabitzer, Emil Forsberg, Davie Selke and Yussuf Poulsen in recent years, and added Timo Werner and Naby Keita this summer - two more highly-touted young talents.

Now, Sky Sports report that Ralph Hasenhuttl's side are now looking to raid West Ham for teenage star Reece Oxford in a shock, ambitious swoop.

Oxford, 17, has come up through the ranks with the Hammers having initially been on the books with Tottenham, and he hit the headlines last season with a stunning performance against Arsenal on the opening day of the Premier League season.

The teenager has been mostly featuring in the West Ham development squad ever since, and many believe he could leave the club this summer with Sky Sports claiming interest from Liverpool and Manchester United.

Now though, it's claimed that Leipzig are keen to land Oxford and have provisionally offered the player a £20,000-a-week contract in a bid to lure him to Germany - but he wants to stay in England.

It's also added that Newcastle want to take Oxford on loan this summer, which could be ideal for the Hammers as they would get to keep the teenager long-term, whilst getting him some valuable first-team experience in the Championship next season.

Do you think West Ham should let Oxford leave this summer?
