West Ham manager Slaven Bilic and Reece Oxford as he is substituted
According to The Telegraph, Manchester City have made an approach to sign West Ham United's teenage sensation Reece Oxford.
Pep Guardiola's side have already snapped up midfielder Ilkay Gundogan and winger Nolito as well as teenager Oleksandr Zinchenko, and the Spaniard now appears keen to bring in more new faces.
Guardiola has earned a reputation for nurturing young players during his trophy-laden managerial career, and another teenager could be targeted by City, who need to bring through some homegrown talent in the coming years.
The Telegraph report that City have made their first approach for West Ham United talent Reece Oxford as they hope to land the teenager this summer.
Oxford, 17, hit the headlines with a superb display on his full West Ham debut against Arsenal in the first game of last season, but was used sparingly by manager Slaven Bilic as the Hammers boss looked to ease Oxford into Premier League football.
Capable of playing at centre back or in holding midfield, Oxford has been tipped for a huge future both in the Premier League and with England - and his potential appears to have sparked interest from Guardiola and City.
It's claimed that Guardiola's scouts have been impressed with Oxford during the Under-19 European Championships, and City have now made their first contact as they hope to seal a deal.
The report adds that West Ham have already rejected a £10m bid from German side RB Leipzig, meaning City may have to considerably improve on that offer to land their man - and West Ham would have to decide whether to cash in on Oxford now or try and develop him in the coming years.
Do you think West Ham should cash in on Oxford this summer?
