Everton are understood to be monitoring Arsenal defender Calum Chambers as a potential replacement for John Stones should the centre-back leave for Chelsea.

England international Stones was linked with a move to Stamford Bridge during the summer, with the Pensioners rebuffed on several occasions as they looked to bring the highly-rated youngster to West London [Mirror].

While it remains to be seen if Chelsea will make an approach for Stones during the January transfer window, as they look to salvage their nightmarish season, the Mirror note that Toffees boss Roberto Martinez is expecting to lose his star stopper some time in the future.
