Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news from the Daily Mail with delight – as the publication suggests that Chelsea will launch a January bid for Everton centre-back John Stones.
It is no secret here in the Transfer Tavern that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is an admirer of the talented centre-back, having already had three bids rejected for the 21-year-old ace.
Our resident punters here in the Tavern thought that Stones was excellent in England’s 2-0 win over France at Wembley on Tuesday night, with them all agreeing that he is going to be a permanent fixture in the heart of the England defence.
Our landlord feels that Mourinho needs to do all in his power to lure the former Barnsley centre-back to Stamford Bridge in January, as the club seriously need to rejuvenate their beleaguered defensive frailties.
The Blues fans over by the pool table here in the Transfer Tavern have been in a downbeat mood for some time now, and we cannot blame them, but seeing this news has certainly perked them all up!
Chelsea fans…… What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Stones at Chelsea? Let us know below!
