John Terry Replacement? Chelsea To ANNOUNCE £40m Signing Of 6ft 4″ Tall Powerful CB, No More Defensive Crisis
According to reports Chelsea are preparing a bid of £40 million for Everton defender John Stone with the view of making the bid in the January transfer window.
Chelsea tried on several occasions to bring the young defender to Stamford Bridge in the past summer transfer window but failed to land him as they faced stiff resilience from the Everton board, who refused to sell the defender to the blues.
According to the daily express Chelsea once again are determined to sign stones this winter, and believe a 40 million pound offer would be too sweet for the Everton board to resist.
Chelsea’s need for a center back has intensified as their defensive displays this season have been shambolic, they have already conceded more goals than they conceded in 38 games last season.
The England international would be a key acquisition for the blues and with the reports of Chelsea will splash a hefty sum of £40 million Everton might be willing to do business.
Stones has been excellent for Everton for some time now and his performances haven’t gone unnoticed, with Manchester United reportedly keen to land the young defender.
The reports state Manchester United are preparing a £50 million fee for his services, which could pose stiff competition for the blues. It will be interesting to see were stone heads eventually should the reports be true.
When the two sides met at Goodison park early this season stones put on a standout performance as Everton brushed Chelsea aside 3-0.
