Chelsea are said to be rekindling a bid for Everton and England International defender John Stones. Stones have been courted by the West London club all through last summer but met stiff resistance from Everton as they wade off all bids from the Club.
Latest report claims that Chelsea have tabled another bid of £45 million for the player this January. the player is said to be valued around £45 million to £50 million and it is believed Chelsea are ready to lure the player with an increase in his wages as part of the offer.
Stones is highly rated and considered as the future of England defence, could be the natural heir to John Terry as the Chelsea captain gradually draws the curtain to his footballing career to a close.
Meanwhile, Chelsea might be in a transfer battle with Spanish super powers as Real Madrid and Barcelona are keen on getting the ball playing defender. The player according to Daily Mail fits into the Barcelona play system as he possesses the ability to initiate attack from defence with his excellent passing and ball interception.
A move for the England star could halt Everton top four bids this season, as he is considered a key component to the Everton team this season. Much would be on the coach Javi Martinez and the board to keep the player or cash in on the player now that his value has skyrocketed.
