Real Madrid reportedly has their sights set on Chelsea’s Reece James, as they seek to replace their right-back, Dani Carvajal. According to AS, James is at the top of Real Madrid’s wish list, as the club looks to move on from Carvajal.
James has been a vital player for Chelsea this season, making 18 appearances across all competitions and scoring two goals while providing two assists. The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best right-backs in England when fully fit, and has earned 16 senior caps for the England national team.
Despite his injury-ridden season, James has remained committed to Chelsea, and prying him away from Stamford Bridge will not be an easy task for any club. Chelsea considers James as a key player for their future, and the club is unlikely to let him leave without a hefty transfer fee.
Real Madrid is just one of several top European clubs who have been admirers of Reece James. The young right-back has been scouted by several top teams in recent months, thanks to his impressive performances for Chelsea and the England national team.
