Reece James names Chelsea transfer target in his three toughest opponents and has say on Messi and Ronaldo in Q&A | The Sun

REECE JAMES has named one of Chelsea's transfer targets as one of the hardest opponents that he has faced.

The Blues defender missed out on going to the World Cup in Qatar due to injury but has been keeping himself occupied with a Twitter Q&A.

During the social media session, he was asked by one fan who the hardest player he had played against in his career was.

James replied, saying: "Three hardest players I've ever played against are all left-wingers! Vinicius Jr, [Rafael] Leao and [Sadio] Mane!"

The three that the full-back named were Real Madrid and Brazil star Vinicius Jr, former Liverpool winger Sadio Mane and AC Milan's Rafael Leao.

Leao's name stuck out as the Portuguese attacker has been tipped with a move to Chelsea since the summer.

Leao saw the tweet and replied to James, saying "My bro", as a sign of mutual respect.

Fans of the Stamford Bridge club were quick to notice the link leading to many to tweet the attacker asking him to join the club.

James was also brought into the Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi debate.
