David Ginola makes a prediction about John Stones

John Stones

David Ginola says that Everton defender John Stones will have many offers in the summer transfer window.

David Ginola said on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Friday morning (broadcast from 6am, April 22) that Everton defender John Stones will have many offers in the summer transfer window.

When asked if he rates the 21-year-old, the former Everton attacker said, “I do”, and added: “I am pretty sure he is going to get interest from many, many clubs.”

Stones is one of the best young defenders in the Premier League and is versatile enough to play as a centre-back or as a right-back.

According to a recent report in The Guardian, Premier League giants Chelsea are interested in signing the England international in the summer transfer window.

Manchester City, Manchester United and Barcelona are also reported to be interested in Stones.

The former Barnsley youngster is very comfortable on the ball and can start attacks from the back.

Although Stones has a propensity to take more time on the ball than most defenders, he is only going to get better with experience.

Given that Everton are having a poor Premier League campaign, there is a very good chance that the young defender could be prised away by a bigger club in the summer transfer window.
