Leipzig want Reece Oxford

Leipzig willing to spend big on Oxford

Bundesliga newcomers RasenBallsport Leipzig are prepared to lodge a winter attempt to sign West Ham youngster Reece Oxford. The teenager has yet to commit his long-term future to the Hammers.

According to The Mirror, the Bulls are weighing up a potential offer for Oxford having been impressed by the progress of Oliver Burke.

Burke, 19, joined the German side from Nottingham Forest in the summer, and has since made a name for himself at the Red Bull Arena.

The Bulls are known to develop young talents in their squad and Oxford is the latest on their radar.

West Ham United have yet to resolve the future of the 17-year-old, and it is believed that they would be reluctant to sell their asset in the near future.

RasenBallsport Leipzig have made a stunning start to their Bundesliga campaign and currently behind Bayern Munich by virtue of goal difference.
