Man City lead John Stones chase

City head Stones pursuit

Manchester City are heading the queue to sign Chelsea target and Everton defender John Stones in the summer.

The England international had been the subject of multiple bids from the Blues over the summer, but the Toffees were not keen on his sale.

Since then, the 21-year-old has had a solid showing in a Toffees shirt, and this has led to claims that he may move on at the end of the season.

According to The Mirror, the Citizens are deemed front-runners to sign the talented centre-back in the next transfer window. It is added that league rivals Chelsea are no longer keen on pursuing a deal for the player.

Stones joined the Toffees from Barnsley for just £3m in 2013.
