Competition: Premier League
Market: Stones to join Man City
Odds: 11/10 @ 888 Sport
Everton defender John Stones has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park this summer, with new Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola reportedly keen on his signature. The England international was denied a move earlier in the season, but may be on his way given how poorly the Blues have fared in 2015/16.
Stones is still only 22, but has been a regular at the heart of the Everton defence this campaign. And while having been guilty of a number of errors at the back, he’s attracting interest from the likes of Manchester City and Barcelona, according to reports. City need more homegrown players, as well as players proficient in a possession-based style of football, and will therefore be pushing hard to get a promising talent such as Stones.
The former Barnsley man has made over 90 appearances in an Everton shirt, and finds himself in the England squad for this summer’s European Championships. He has a chance to impress for potential suitors if given an opportunity, and City are among many likely to pay attention. 888 Sport are giving odds of 11/10 for Man City to sign Stones ahead of the new season as a result.
