The Daily Mirror claim West Ham could sell Reece Oxford in January and that Manchester United could be interested.

It comes after Hammers boss Slaven Bilic declared that the highly-rated 18-year-old, who is on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, should not believe he is on a par with France star Kylian Mbappe after both players were nominated for the prestigious Golden Boy award.

The Mirror reckon Bilic’s remarks could put a question mark over Oxford’s future and that United were previously interested in the defender and could be again if he were to become available.

Meanwhile, reports continue to claim that Tottenham star Dele Alli is looking for a huge pay rise.

Alli signed a long-term contract with the club last year and is reportedly paid around £50,000 a week.

There has been speculation about his future and reports that he is looking to be paid as much as Spurs’ top earners Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris, who are reportedly paid around £100,000 a week.

The Daily Mail say Alli will ask for more than that because he could get close to £200,000 a week were he to move elsewhere.

The Sun say the England international is looking to be paid £160,000 a week in order to commit his future to Spurs.

The Mirror again tip Arsenal to make a move for Monaco midfielder Thomas Lemar, who is also said to be a Liverpool transfer target.

And Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea are among a host of clubs the Mirror claim are interested in Manchester United’s England Under-21 keeper Dean Henderson.

The others are apparently Watford, Stoke, West Brom, Southampton, Wolves, Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa, Benfica, Olympiakos and Udinese.
