Chelsea have reportedly made a move for Manchester City defender John Stones.

The 26-year old struggled for fitness this season and seems to have fallen out of favour under manager Pep Guardiola.

The recent signing of Bournemouth centre-back Nathan Ake for £41m would pose a threat to him in the starting line-up.

The Blues are hoping to strike a bargain deal of £20m for the out of favour centre-back and Frank Lampard claims he can resurrect his form.

Frank Lampard made it clear that he would be overhauling the defence in this transfer window and Arsenal has also been linked with a move for the England international.

Arsenal legend Paul Merson admitted that John Stones would a better fit for his old club’s rivals Chelsea.

He told Sky Sports: “I’d go and get John Stones for that, and play him in the middle of the three. Then I’d say have Antonio Rudiger and Christensen either side of them.

“Chelsea love to play out the back, they roll it out every time, so you need someone unbelievably good on the ball.

“If you have pace around them, I think it will help Chelsea; I think Stones would be a great buy, and he has to play in a three.”
