Arsenal preparing £8m bid to capture Premier League ace

Reece OxfordArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are bracing themselves for an exciting finale to the season, where they hope they can end their long wait for a Premier League crown and give Barcelona a tough test in the Champions League.

Looking into the summer, our punters want some big signings to be made and they’re excited to hear about a report linking them to one of the Premier League’s brightest young stars.

The Daily Mirror state Arsenal are eying an £8m swoop for West Ham United prodigy Reece Oxford, who starred for the Hammers on the first day of the season as they secured a shock victory against the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal have watched the 17-year-old since before his days in East London and have continued to track the teenager this season, where he has been promoted to West Ham’s first-team squad.

Whilst Oxford still has two-and-a-half-years remaining on his contract, his first-team chances at West Ham have decreased significantly since October and that could play into Arsenal’s hands.

Arsenal have a strong defence, boasting the likes of Gabriel Paulista, Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker, but Oxford could be developed into a crucial part of the side for the future.

Our landlord would love to see his happen and is hopeful a deal can be concluded when the transfer window reopens.

Arsenal fans, would Oxford be a decent signing? Let us know in the comments below!
