West Ham midfielder Reece Oxford has been offered a £20,000-a-week contract by Bundesliga club Red Bull Leipzig, according to Sky sources.
The newly-promoted German side are the latest club to attempt to lure the highly-rated 17-year-old away from the Hammers.
Leipzig are preparing for their first season in the top flight of German football after finishing second in Bundesliga 2 last season.
Sky sources understand Oxford wishes to stay in England, with Manchester United and Liverpool both thought be keen on the player.
Rafael Benitez is also interested in taking Oxford on a season-long loan to Newcastle United, as he attempts to guide the club back to the Premier League at the first attempt.
Oxford, who is contracted to West Ham until 2018, made his first-team debut at the age of 16, starring in West Ham's opening-day 2-0 win at Arsenal last season.
The England U-19 international has since played a further 11 games for Slaven Bilic's side and is viewed as the club's brightest young prospect.
West Ham are thought to be only considering bids above £10m for Oxford, who rejected a new deal at the club earlier this summer.
