Tottenham fans want to swap Alderweireld for Stones

According to The Sun, Manchester City are willing to sell John Stones in this summer’s transfer window.

The centre-back is behind Vincent Kompany, Nicolas Otamendi and Aymeric Laporte in the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium, and has really struggled for football in recent weeks.

There is no doubting that the 23-year-old is a fine talent, however, and it is thought that Arsenal and Liverpool are both monitoring developments surrounding a player that is sure to travel with the England squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Tottenham Hotspur are yet to be linked, but with Toby Alderweireld expected to leave the London club this summer, the Spurs fans think that they have the answer.

Indeed, a number have called for their club to propose a swap deal – Stones for Alderweireld – in this summer’s transfer window.

That said, the Manchester Evening News believe that there is no chance of Stones, who is valued at £45m by transfermarkt.co.uk, leaving the Premier League champions this summer.
