Everton striker and former Chelsea player Romelu Lukaku thinks John Stones would be better off staying at Everton than he would be moving to Chelsea.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has had three bids knocked back for the 21-year-old England international as Everton continues to tell Chelsea that their star defender is not for sale.
“To be fair John is in a good situation at a good club which believes in him,” Lukaku, who left Stamford Bridge last summer, told several national newspapers.
“He is playing and is learning a lot from Phil Jagielka. He’s been here two years now but this is the year where he really needs to confirm he is the top player he can be.
“This club has massive potential, with the players we have and the ambition the manager has. He is in a good place. He’s on to a good thing.”
