Recce Oxford, the West Ham United youngster announced himself to the world in a spectacular fashion, by successfully marking Arsenal play-maker Mesut Özil.
As a result of this, a lot of interest for the youngster has been generated. Aware of this interest, Oxford rejected a new contract offered to him by West Ham towards the end of last season, with his current one expiring in 2018.
According to Sky Sports, West Ham have turned down a £10m offer from newly promoted Bundesliga club RB Leipzig. West Ham have also received an offer from freshly relegated Newcastle United to take the youngster on loan for a season.
He made a total of 12 appearances last season, after debuting in a Europa League first qualifying round match in July last year. His latest appearance was against West Bromwich Albion as a substitute, in a 3-0 win over them at the Hawthorns on the 30th of April.
And now, according to Sky Sports, Manchester City’s newly appointed manager Pep Guardiola has marked Oxford as one of his transfer targets. The Blues have made an official approach to sign the Manchester United target from West Ham.
