Everton are interested in signing Reece James from Premier League rivals Chelsea in the summer transfer window, according to Football Insider.

It has been reported that the Toffees are planning a move for the defender and are determined to secure the services of the 19-year-old.

The talented and promising teenager spent the 2018-19 campaign on loan at Wigan Athletic in the Championship.

The England Under-20 international had a very good season on a personal level, and his performances have reportedly impressed Everton.

According to WhoScored, the full-back made 44 starts and one substitute appearance in the Championship for the Latics, scoring three goals and providing three assists in the process.

Everton are reportedly looking at James as a long-term replacement for 30-year-old right-back Seamus Coleman – who has been on the books of the Merseyside outfit since 2009 and earns £70,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com.
