Report: Everton rejects Chelsea's $47 million bid for John Stones
The Blues are looking to boost their backline after poor performances this season.
Everton has said no to a $47 million bid from Chelsea for talented 21-year-old defender John Stones, according to ESPNFC.
The club rejected a $40 million offer from Chelsea in July, as the Blues aim to improve their backline after securing just one point from six this league season, including a 3-0 loss at Manchester City on Sunday.
Stones, who has made four appearances for the English national team, scored one goal in 23 appearances for Everton in 2014-15.
A talented defender with plenty of room to grow, it's hard to imagine many teams rejecting such a massive bid. But Everton manager Roberto Martinez seems keen on building the squad and fighting for a European spot rather than selling.
