Premier League legend: This man would be a perfect signing for Chelsea


Former Everton striker Andy Gray believes John Stones could be the one to take over from John Terry at Chelsea.

The Englishman is a target for boss Jose Mourinho with the Blues set to make a new offer to sign him in the coming days.

And Gray says the youngster will be one of the best centre-backs in the country if he makes a move to Stamford Bridge.

"John Stones is good and he could be one of the best," Gray told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.

"He's got every quality that you need to be a top centre-back.

"He seems to have a good personality and is good on the football. Maybe he's just a little bit too elaborate at times for a young boy at centre-back, but that's more about his confidence than anything else.

"If you're losing John Terry in the next year to 18 months, and you're asking me whether he's a player who would fit in at Chelsea, then 100 per cent. It makes absolute sense.

"He's British, which helps. He might cost £30million but he can only get better under the right guidance."
