Chelsea face transfer dilemma over defender Reece James

Chelsea face a transfer dilemma over young defender Reece James.

The Mirror says Chelsea face a fight to keep hold of James, with Brighton and Crystal Palace among a number of Premier League clubs interested.

The 19-year-old full-back has yet to play a single game for the Blues. He is on a season-long loan spell with Championship side Wigan. But he impressed in in central midfield during Saturday's 2-1 win over QPR and has already been tipped for a big future.

Wigan boss Paul Cook said: "He's player of the month every month, and he's man of the match almost every week."
