Chelsea are intensifying their interest for Everton defender John Stones.

The People says Chelsea hope to tie up a £12million deal before the World Cup.

Stones has been put on standby for Roy Hodgson's England squad and will go to Brazil if Phil Jones fails to recover fully from a shoulder injury.

Everton paid £3million to sign Stones from Barnsley last summer and he has proved himself to be one of the top flight's most exciting young talents in his first season at Goodison.
