Chelsea seem to have carried their “never say die” attitude of the pitch onto the transfer market as they look to sign John Stones from Everton.
According to latest reports, Chelsea have reignited their interest in the transfer long-term target John Stones with the report stating that defending Champions have submitted a £45 million(€60million) for the player.
During the summer, Chelsea saw three bids for the player repudiated in the summer after Martinez said they were unwilling to sell the tough-tackling defender.
A report according to Fichajes is in the claim that Hiddink is desperate the sign the England international as he is keen on correcting the failings of his defence line.
Prior to the opening of the winter transfer market, the Toffees boss Roberto Martinez had ruled out a move for the player in this window. Nonetheless, surprises abound in the transfer market and £45 million will be good enough to make the Merseyside club consider a move for the defensive stalwart.
Chelsea are not left alone in the chase of the player. Manchester United and Barcelona are also understood to be interested. Apparently has personally sanctioned the move for the player as he is keen on usurping the other clubs to his signature.
Chelsea’s skipper John Terry is in the final year of his contract and Stone will come in as a long-term replacement for Terrt. He will be a great addition for the Blues.
