EPL side set to offer wonderkid a long-term contract; Man City, Man United & Arsenal won’t be happy

West Ham United are set to offer wonderkid Reece Oxford a new contract as they look to fend off interest from some of the Premier League’s biggest sides.

17-year-old Oxford burst onto the scene at the beginning of the season with a series of mature, imposing performances as Slaven Bilic made an excellent start to live at Upton Park.

While the defensive starlet hasn’t managed to hold down a place in the side—making just seven appearances (of which three have been starts) this term—his performances haven’t gone unnoticed.

According to the Daily Mail, heavyweight trio Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal are all understood to be keen on the young Englishman, with the Gunners in particular understood to be plotting a move for the wonderkid during the summer.

However, Bilic is understood to be keen to keep hold of the teenager, and as such, the Hammers are believed to have offered the talent a new long-term deal as they look to keep one of the jewels of their academy at the club for the upcoming seasons.
