West Ham ‘leapfrog Arsenal in £20m chase for Manchester City defender John Stones’ as centre-back nears exit with Nathan Ake set to replace him and join Pep Guardiola’s side

  • Stones has endured difficult campaign for Manchester City this season 
  • The defender could be available for just £20m and that has alerted Moyes
  • Arsenal have also been linked with a move for the England international 

Manchester City defender John Stones could be set for a reunion with former boss David Moyes at West Ham, according to the Sun.

Stones joined Everton from Barnsley in a £3m deal in January 2013 but Moyes moved to Manchester United a few months later.

Arsenal are also in the hunt for Stones, who recently opened up on his difficulty with form and fitness issues.  

He told Sky Sports: ‘It has been really frustrating from a personal perspective. Injury re-occurrence, then little things like getting injured a few days in after lockdown.

‘It’s been frustrating. I’ve tried to stay positive, and be ready when I’m called upon, and I feel I have been. 

‘Coming back after lockdown, getting fit again, and then coming back in and playing against some tough opponents.’
