Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on bolstering his defensive options this summer and Paul Merson has urged Lampard to sign Manchester City defender John Stones.

Merson told StarSport: “Chelsea should go and get John Stones because there is a success story there waiting to happen.

“When you hear they have put defenders like Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen up for sale, you can see they need a centre back.

“I’ve said all along Stones would do well there. And they should go and get him now. He has no future at City.

“Guardiola was playing a midfielder, Fernandinho, ahead of him last season, and a defender in Eric Garcia who wants to leave the club!

“I’d be amazed if he was still there by the end of this window. But lots of clubs should be looking at him.

“Stones is homegrown. He’s an England international. He has plenty of experience. But he’s still young. He ticks a lot of boxes.

“You play him in a three and he ca play it out for you and get them going. He would be one of the best defenders around in a three.

“He’s just like David Luiz, who was phenomenal for Chelsea when Antonio Conte played him in the middle of a three.”
