PATIENTLY WAITING

Oxford made his Premier League debut as a 16-year-old against Arsenal in 2015

Reece Oxford is prepared to wait until the summer to seal a move away from West Ham United and head to Arsenal.

The 20-year-old has had two loan spells with Borussia Monchengladbach and the Hammers are keen to sell him to a German club, but the defender wants to remain in England, report the Mirror.

He was also sent on loan to Championship side Reading, where he played five times in the second half of the 2016/17 season.

West Ham would want around £3million for the defender who has come through the ranks at the club, having begun his youth career at Tottenham.

Despite his current deal expiring in 2021, West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has warned Oxford might have to leave the club to get regular football.

Arsenal are in desperate need to bolster defence with a number of injuries stretching Unai Emery’s limited resources.

Laurent Koscielny has just returned after eight months out, Rob Holding suffered a cruciate ligament injury in November and Nacho Monreal is often sidelined by muscular niggles. Hector Bellerin is out with a calf strain and Shkodran Mustafi’s comeback lasted 45 minutes in the 5-1 thrashing against Liverpool.

It was against Arsenal that Oxford made his Premier League debut against as a 16-year-old, playing 79 minutes and impressing in a 2-0 win for West Ham at Emirates Stadium in 2015.
