Linked heavily with Chelsea for the past few weeks now, the Blues have already seen two bids turned down for the Everton centre back but our resident Chelsea supporters are hoping it will be third time lucky in their much publicised pursuit.
The latest on Stones’ situation was reported by The Telegraph who claim the Blues could be forced to give up on their pursuit of the England international with Roberto Martinez yet again reaffirming the Toffees’ desire to keep hold of the player.
Thus far this summer, we’ve heard nothing from the player himself to suggest he will 100 per cent be staying at Goodison Park this transfer window and for a player aged just 21-year-old, we’d imagine he may have had his head turned behind the scenes.
You’d imagine that Chelsea might try one more time to better the £26 million they offered for Stones most recently and perhaps £30 million (ridiculous we know!) might finally do it, alongside firmer intentions from the player of course.
