La Liga giants Atlético Madrid are have reportedly identified West Ham youngster Reece Oxford as a potential summer transfer target.
RB Leipzig are also interested in the youngster, who - according to the report - would prefer a move to Spain, if he cannot break into the West Ham squad.
Last summer, Oxford joined Borussia M
The England under-20 international returned to West Ham in January, in order for manager David Moyes to assess the teenager. However, the Scot decided to favour experience as he geared up for his side's relegation battle.
Oxford subsequently returned to Gladbach on loan, and made his fourth appearance for them when he started at right-back in their 1-0 defeat to Dortmund on Sunday.

Atlético are said to be long-term admirers of Oxford, and believe he could be a 'good long-term prospect' having scouted him for a long time.
Oxford was the subject of an £8m bid from loan club Gladbach in January, but they fell £4m short of West Ham's valuation.
The central defender, who can also play at right-back or in a defensive midfield role, is under consideration for a move up to Aidy Boothroyd's England Under-21 squad next month.
