The England international has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge for much of this summer, with speculation that a £34m offer would be enough to see him let go by the Toffees.

It remains to be seen if Chelsea will meet that asking price after recently having a £30m bid turned down by the Merseyside club, but a defender does seem to be a priority for Jose Mourinho.

According to the Daily Star, Stones’ move to the Blues could now be on as Everton seem to be seriously weighing up a move for Williams to come in in his place.
