Premier League champions Manchester City are interested in signing Chelsea right-back Reece James this summer.

According to talkSPORT, Chelsea have responded to Pep Guardiola’s interest in signing Reece James.

The report claims Chelsea have told City that James is not for sale and that he remains an integral part of first-team plans at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking about his development under Thomas Tuchel, James said earlier this month: “When a new manager comes in and you’re not in the team straight away you have to accept the decision.

“You have to work hard, try and prove to the manager that you should be playing.

“These moments come around quite often in football, things happen so fast and I didn’t really get advice off anyone.

“I just went into training, carried on working hard and when I got my opportunity I knew I had to take it.

“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.”
