Chelsea’s Reece James is a name being linked with a variety of clubs this summer and new Swansea manager Steve Cooper is the latest to express his interest, according to the Daily Mail.
James was on loan at fellow Championship side Wigan last season and impressed, making 45 appearances for Paul Cook’s side, contributing three goals and three assists.
The player’s future is up in the air with Chelsea’s transfer embargo looming, and it was thought the versatile 19-year-old could remain at his parent club and fight for game time in the Premier League once he returns from injury.
With Sarri also leaving, any new manager that comes in will have to make the most of the youth at the club, but for now, another loan move to England’s second tier could be an option for the youngster.
Cooper’s Swansea face competition from a number of Bundesliga sides who are also interested in making a move for the right-back this summer.
Who are the loanees who could be given a chance at Chelsea next season?
Spent last season at Everton and at 24, it may be time for the player to fight for a permanent spot at Chelsea.
Deserves a chance in the Premier League after an impressive loan spell at Derby County, and could play a part in the first-team under Frank Lampard, should he land the job.
Chelsea may be forced into giving Michy Batshuayi a chance next season if they are unable to sign another striker.
Has improved since going to Serie A with AC Milan but things have never really worked out in the Premier League. The potential return of Claude Makelele could help him in London.
