Manchester City will welcome new boss Pep Guardiola to the club during the summer and he is expected to put his own stamp on a squad which has underachieved in the Premier League during the current campaign.
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern has been catching up with all the latest football news and he has spotted an article in the Daily Mail, who are reporting that City’s new boss wants to sign West Ham youngster Reece Oxford, in order to bump up his homegrown quota of talent.
Oxford began the season with a breathtaking performance in the Hammers’ win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, although the club have remained cautious over his game time throughout the campaign.
The 17-year-old is competent in either a midfield or defence and his versatility would make him a shrewd acquisition for the top club’s in the Premier League.
One City fan here in the Transfer Tavern is having a Saturday session with his pals and he thinks that Oxford would be a solid addition to the squad, stating that he could learn a lot from Vincent Kompany.
City fans, would you welcome Oxford to the club? Can he be an instant hit at the Etihad Stadium?
