Manchester City keen on signing Reece James

Fulham

Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing yet another Chelsea player, Reece James. The 21-year-old right-back has been experiencing a lack of playing time under new coach Thomas Tuchel.

Despite a lacklustre start of the season, Tuchel brought the Blues to the top as they went on to win the Champions League. James was one of the star performers of the match and was superb defensively keeping Manchester City attackers away from Chelsea goalpost.

Although his contract in London expires four years later, Pep Guardiola wants to bring him to the Etihad Stadium. Alongside him, the Cityzens are also interested in signing Jack Grealish and Harry Kane.

Will Reece James follow Nathan Ake to Manchester City ?

Manchester City have signed many players from the Pensioners and many of them impressed. Nathan Ake would be the most recent player. Additionally, Guardiola is not impressed the way Joao Cancelo and the other side backs are performing. Thus, Reece James would be a perfect signing for him.

The Englishman made his senior debut with the Premier League club in 2019 and since then, he had been one of the best talents in the league. Since then, he had made 84 appearances for the London side scoring 3 goals and bagging 8 assists.

According to The Athletic, Pep Guardiola would like to take advantage of the situation and bring him to his elite team. However, it would be a difficult deal as James is currently enjoying his time at the current Champions League winners.

James loves the learning under his new coach and in an interview with Daily Mail, he said,

“At the start of the season we had Frank Lampard and I was very lucky to play the majority of the games under him but when our new manager came in our style of play and formation changed. It was a big learning curve.”

He has featured just once for England in the Euros 2020 and might be featuring in the knockouts against Germany.
