Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard has reportedly made a £20million swoop to snap up Manchester City defender John Stones as he prepares for next season.
The 26-year-old England star is likely to leave the Etihad this summer following the £41m arrival of ex-Blues player Nathan Ake.
According to the Mirror, interest in the former Everton man has sparked Chelsea boss Frank Lampard’s interest.
The report adds that Lamps feels he can resurrect Stones’ career and is prepared to sanction a £20m move.
But they are set to face competition for Stones from his former boss David Moyes at West Ham.
Arsenal – managed by ex-City assistant Arteta – are also interested but the London club will have to sell before they can buy.
