Transfer update : Mourinho looks for a left-back, Spurs look to rebuild, Arsenal manager latest

Steven Gerrard wants to make Reece Burke his next Rangers signing. 

The new Ibrox boss snapped up Scott Arfield from Burnley earlier this week.

And now he has set his sights on landing highly-rated West Ham defender Burke.

The 21-year-old centre back impressed on loan at Bolton this year where his performances helped keep Wanderers in the Championship.

He has played 15 times for his boyhood club West Ham, scoring his first goal in the Carabao Cup earlier this season.

But the Premier League side are weighing up whether to cash in on the in-demand youngster or send him out on loan again.

Gerrard and Rangers face strong competition to land Burke.

Sheffield Wednesday are understood to be leading the chase for Burke’s signature on a temporary deal.

However Rangers are ready to offer a permanent switch, as do promotion hopefuls Aston Villa, Leeds and Reading.

Burke may not be the only West Ham academy graduate potentially leaving the club this summer.

Reece Oxford, who spent the season at Borussia Monchengladbach, is set to extend his stay in Germany.

Sounds like he might be good (if we got him). But, as with a lot of these relatively obscure players, I don't really have a clue what he's like.

I'd prefer Oxford but he is highly rated at West Ham so doubt we would get either .

No danger we will be getting him.

Did well in Germany and they seem to be mad keen on young English talent at minute.

Would be sad to lose Burke as he's an east London lad and you always want local talent to play. 

Despite what the Mirror says, his tenure at Bolton ended badly.

There's absolutey a talent there, so if he did leave I'd prefer it be to Rangers than anyone else. 

As for Reece Oxford - he's still dining on keeping Ozil in his pocket three years ago and has a stinking attitude. Will be another player with great potential who won't fulfill it.

Report saying he's been told he can leave and West Ham open to offers.

"Pellegrini is open to offers for open to offers for Andy Carroll, Sam Byram, Jordan Hugill, Reece Burke and Edimilson Fernandes."

We should be all over Sam Byram if he’s leaving

Only if he’s not another winger. We need CBs. Mair wingers than an auld Chinese laundry FFS.

He's a wing-back who like Oxford and Burke has failed to live up to the expectation. 

In fairness to Byram though, it's largely through injury.

Ooooh injury prone, perfect for us.

Seen a few games of Oxford playing in Germany and looked really good. Saying a 19 year old hasn't lived up to his expectation is a pretty stupid thing to say especially the fact he's a centre back.

He hardly played regularly and the same when on loan at Reading. 

Unfortunately Reece Oxford has a poor attitude that overshadows his potential.

Yeah agree he's not had a string of games in his career at all. 

I would like him here on loan for a season. Think he has massive potential and he would respect Stevie a lot
