Reece James, who has spent a season on loan at Wigan, is viewed very highly by individuals at Stamford Bridge.
The 19-year-old has been a standout performer at the DW Stadium and Maurizio Sarri plans to begin offering the teenager a route into the first-team next term.Chelsea though may face difficulty in keeping James in west London, according to The Sun.
Currently it appears the biggest cause of concern for Callum Hudson-Odoi, who is entering the final year of his contract.
The 18-year-old is high on Bayern Munich’s shopping list and he is keen on a move to Bavaria where young players have shone.
He rejected an £80,000-a-week deal earlier this year with minutes on the pitch his main priority, not wages.
Sarri had begun playing the winger on a more regular basis before an Achilles injury cut short a season that had seen him make his England debut.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek is currently the biggest success story of the Blues academy and he is stamping his authority on a place in the Chelsea midfield.
