The People reported that Stones is on a shortlist of potential summer signings as Mourinho attempts to strengthen his title-winning back four.

Stones is highly regarded at Stamford Bridge and landing him would help Chelsea meet the required Premier League quota of home-grown players.

He has come on leaps and bounds since he arrived at Goodison Park from Barnsley for a bargain £3million in January 2013 and is regarded as one of the best ball-playing central defenders around.

But Everton boss Roberto Martinez will do all he can to hang onto the 21-year-old, who is also interesting Manchester United.
