Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel reportedly intends to use Chelsea right-back Reece James in a new position next season.

According to The Mirror via CaughtOffside, Tuchel intends to use James as part of Chelsea’s back three next season.

Despite being a stand out performer at right-back in recent times for the Blues, Tuchel sees James’ long-term future as a right-sided centre-back and would prefer to sign a new right wing-back who is technically better on the ball in wider positions.

Tuchel had pushed for the signing of Inter Milan right-back Achraf Hakimi but the Moroccan international has reportedly opted to join French club Paris Saint-Germain instead.
