Arsenal rival Chelsea for excelling Premier League star

stonesArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have expressed their surprise this morning after reports suggested they have entered the race for one of the hottest properties in Premier League football.

The Mirror states that Arsenal are ready to offer big-bucks to lure Everton defender John Stones to North London, as they aim to beat rivals Chelsea to the signature of the England international.

Stones was subject to numerous bids from the Blues during the summer, and even handed in a transfer request, but ended up remaining with the Merseyside club- and he’s been superb since.

The England international would cost over £30m but Arsenal are prepared to pay the price for the 21-year-old, seeing him as a superb addition to their squad and a tremendous prospect for the future.

However, the chances of Stones leaving Everton in January seem slim as Roberto Martinez has insisted any bids for the defender in the New Year will be rejected.

The Arsenal fans gathering for their latest fixture against Norwich City have stated they’d love to see Stones at their club but aren’t convinced Wenger will pay the price needed to bring him to the Emirates.

Will Arsenal pay over £30m to land John Stones? Let us know in the comments below!
