Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he wants to add Everton defender John Stones to his squad.
The Blues are expected to make a new offer for the Englishman after having an initial bid of £20m rejected by Everton.
"We made a bid, the bid is there and Everton have the power to accept it or refuse it," Mourinho told Sky Sports News HQ.
"The transfer window is open, when it is open every club and every player is open to bids.
"Bids come for our players, we make bids for other players and the process can be so simple.
"I would advise [Everton manager] Roberto [Martinez] to do the same thing as I do. If I get an offer for one of my players and I don't want to accept any offer I say I don't accept any offer, so he can make it very, very easy.
"If today I receive a bid for [Cesc] Fabregas in two minutes I will say I don't accept any bid, game over, that's it."
