Chelsea set to wrap up top transfer target this week

stonesIn what could be said to have a feel of a classic summer saga, there is news in the Football Transfer Tavern today that Chelsea may finally be about to announce the signing of the highly-coveted England centre-back John Stones.

In the reports coming out of the Metro, they have revealed that via the source of the Express, the 21-year old defender has directly asked Everton manager Roberto Martinez to allow him to leave.

An initial bid of £20 million had been rejected by the Toffee’s already this transfer window, but with the interest of the Premier League champions still likely to exist this latest revelation could bring the move to reality.

After hearing the apparent news that the young centre-back has made it clear he wants to leave, the Landlord here in the Tavern had this to say: “I hope they just get this one over with, I think we all know it is going to happen eventually – he is the best man to replace John terry”.

What do you think Chelsea fans? Will it happen? Will John Stones be as good as John Terry if he joins? Let us know below!
