Everton prepare offer for West Ham United defender

Everton are considering making an offer for West Ham United defender Reece Oxford, according to Sky Sports News.

It is understood that the Toffees’ bid would be in the region of £3m for the player who spent the last two seasons on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Hammers are willing to offload the 19-year-old this summer, although they will only consider offers in the region of £10m, Sky Sports News add.

Everton are looking to take advantage of West Ham’s willingness to offload Reece Oxford to land their third signing of the summer.

The Merseyside club have so far backed new manager Marco Silva with the impressive additions of Richarlison and Lucas Digne in a far more quieter summer than last.

Oxford has been a highly rated young player since he burst onto the scene for West Ham against Arsenal at age 16 and has since been sent on three loan spells to the Championship and the Bundesliga to continue his development.

The Toffees are now considering submitting a £3m offer for the defender who could see his first-team opportunities limited at the London Stadium next season with West Ham added multiple defensive reinforcements this transfer window.
