The Mirror have managed to get Chelsea fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the club’s number one target, John Stones, is now being forced to live in a hotel.
Chelsea have been chasing Stones all summer, and with Jose Mourinho seemingly unwilling to give up on the player, Everton and Roberto Martinez are struggling to know what to do after the defender handed in a transfer request.
The move comes after Everton fans targeted his home, and with the player no longer feeling safe, we think this could be one step closer to him leaving the Toffees and becoming a Chelsea player.
Should Chelsea fail to land the player, they will divert their attentions elsewhere, and our landlord here in the Tavern can’t blame them!
A plethora of Chelsea fans here in the Tavern feel that John Stones would be an excellent signing, but anything near the region of £40 million is simply way too much money!
Chelsea fans…… Do you want to see Stones brought into the club? Will a move come off before deadline day? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
