Real Madrid are among the top European clubs who are big admirers of Chelsea's Reece James.
The England right back is considered one of the best in his position when fully fit.
James has endured an injury ridden season, but is hoping to show his best form between now and May.
According to AS, Real want to move on from their right back Dani Carvajal.
They are seeking replacements, with James said to be at the very top of the wish list.
However, his commitment to Chelsea has never wavered, which means prizing him away from Stamford Bridge will not be easy.
