Crystal Palace are interested in Chelsea youngster Reece James, The Sun on Sunday say.

The 19-year-old defender is a product of Chelsea’s academy and is currently on a season-long loan with Championship side Wigan.

The Sun on Sunday say Palace have been monitoring James as a potential replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

It comes amid reports linking England Under-21 international Wan-Bissaka with a big-money move from Selhurst Park this summer.

Meanwhile, there continues to be speculation over the future of under-pressure Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri.

The Sunday Times say the club have spoken to assistant boss Gianfranco Zola about the possibility of him taking interim charge if Sarri is sacked.

And the Mail on Sunday say Fulham could face an exodus of players if they are relegated from the Premier League.

The newspaper say the Whites face losing the likes of Ryan Sessegnon, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Tom Cairney if they drop back down to the Championship.
