everton, chelsea, manchester united,


Despite what Everton manager Roberto Martinez is saying in the press, when he claims the clubs star defender, England U-21 centre-back John Stones is not for sale, we all know that he is holding out for the clubs valuation of £34 million, and now that Manchester United has joined Chelsea in the race for the Everton youngster, he will almost undoubtedly get the price the club wants.

Add to this reports this morning that the Toffee’s will make a move for Swansea City defender Ashley Williams, and you know that a deal between Everton and the two premiership giants is close to happening.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez knows Williams well from his time at the Liberty Stadium and will now look to be reunited with the 30-year-old at Goodison Park should the deal for Stones go through.

Everton has also been looking at £7million-rated Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly along with River Plate centre-back Ramiro Funes Mori who is expected to cost around £5.5million.
