It’s no secret that John Terry is at the twilight end of his career and we need a young and competent Centre Back to replace our club legend, eventually. A quality Centre Back is one of the hardest to find in professional football and John Stones might not be one of the best yet, but the “young and English” Centre Back has definitely got the potential to be the one someday.
That’s why, Chelsea making an official bid for the 21-year-old, doesn’t come as a surprise at all.
Various tabloids have been reporting on this situation and here’s what the Guardian had to say about it:
“Chelsea are considering an improved offer for John Stones after Everton rejected their opening £20m bid for the defender. The Merseysiders received the unexpected offer from José Mourinho’s Premier League champions at the end of a day of pre-season preparations here.”
Everton considers John Stones as their prize asset and there’s no way the toffees would let him go at anywhere less than 25 Million Pounds. The Guardian reports that we are considering an improved offer which would be interesting.
Here’s what John Stones thinks about the situation:
“I am very happy at Everton. My aim right now is to try to nail down a regular spot in this Everton team and hopefully that will take care of playing for England. I have to keep learning from the likes of Phil Jagielka and keep progressing at this club.”

Securing the services of John Stones should be our primary target of the summer. If we manage to bring the 21-year-old to the Bridge, our Centre Back struggles will most probably be solved! Hopefully, the deals go through!
