John Stones makes decision on his future amidst, Arsenal, Chelsea interest

Timothy Aiyeku



Two London rivals, Arsenal and Chelsea have registered their interest in John Stones who seems to be wanted out by Man City in this summer transfer window.

The England international defender was not a major part of the Pep Guardiola team last season and that sparked speculations of his move away from the club this summer transfer window.

A number of English Premier League clubs, including Arsenal and Chelsea, have been making efforts to take up the chances of signing the Man City to upgrade their team ahead of the coming season.

It is now claimed that John Stones is unwilling to leave Etihad Stadium this summer transfer window but will remain at the club to fight for his place next season.

Pundits have claimed that Arsenal will no longer sign any central defender in this summer transfer window after the capture of Gabriel Magalhaes and the return of William Saliba from loan.

Chelsea have also been able to sign Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, and Malanga Sarr which means they might not be submitting a £20 million bid for the signature of John Stones.

Arsenal were also linked with a move for Stones, who would have been reunited with former City coach, Mikel Arteta.

The Gunners made no official bid for him, and instead signed Gabriel Maghalaes from Lille.

But according to The Telegraph, John Stones has no intention of leaving City and believes he can win back the trust of boss Pep Guardiola.
