It has already been reported that Chelsea are after Brighton & Hove Albion defender Lewis Dunk, but the Mirror has also suggested that they are looking into bringing unwanted Manchester City centre-back John Stones in on loan.
The report claims that whether or not the Blues are successful in their pursuit of Dunk will not have an impact on their decision-making regarding Stones whatsoever.
This comes with Frank Lampard looking to improve his team’s defence, after they conceded 54 league goals this term — the highest in the Premier League’s top 10.
They are not seemingly put off by the fact the 26-year-old made just 15 starts across all competitions for City during the entire 2019-20 campaign.
