With Roberto Martinez and Everton management doing everything they can to keep hold off the Englishman, Chelsea have grown frustrated after watching every one of their bids rejected. The Toffees, reportedly, value the decent and inexperienced youngster at around 40 Million Pounds which hasn’t gone down well with Mourinho and co.

Probably that’s why, Chelsea are already looking for an alternative, should the Toffees doesn’t soften their stance over Stones. As per the reports published in various news outlets, including the Metro:

“Chelsea are reportedly in negotiations with Zenit St Petersburg defender Ezequiel Garay as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his backline before the transfer window closes.

Lack of form has already prompted the Chelsea boss to table a series of bids for Everton’s John Stones, but according to Di Marzio, the Blues are currently in discussions with Garay.

The 28-year-old Argentine has been strongly linked with a move away from Zenit this summer, with Chelsea now looking an increasingly realistic destination for him after Mourinho personally requested his signing.”

Ezequiel Garay is a regular member of the Zenit side, but given that he is 28-years-old, this won’t be a long-term option although, he could temporarily help fix our defensive issues, if the deal does go through.

John Stones will definitely be a very good option going forward, but for 40 Million Pounds? I think I will pass!

If Chelsea are indeed looking for Ezequiel Garay to solve the defensive issues, he could be a much cheaper and a more reliable option compared to John Stones. With just 6 more days left for the transfer window to close, I think this week is going to be a very interesting one!
