Chelsea fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are somewhat underwhelmed after reading the news from the Express – which claims that Jose Mourinho’s side are set to consider a move for Everton centre-back John Stones.
A large proportion of Blues fans here in the Tavern feel that the club should be vying for a move for Real Madrid star defender Raphael Varane, instead of a Stones.
At the age of 20, the Everton defender has a large amount of his professional career left and his versatility in defence is something that will no doubt be an attractive proposition for Mourinho.
Stones has already made four appearances for the England national team at the mere age of 20, so it is evident he does have talent and ability.
A large group of Chelsea fans over by the dartboard in the Football Transfer Tavern feel this could be a shrewd purchase, but most are worried he could find himself on the bench more than the pitch!
