Legend urges Arsenal to make move and ‘take a chance’ on £20 million Stones

Arsenal need to “take a chance” on John Stones and join West Ham in the race for the Manchester City centre-half, says Ray Parlour.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has one of the best squads in the game right now and is tipped to add another centre-back to his squad this summer, with reports that Nathan Ake is all set to join the club.

And that has led to some speculation in the media suggesting that he will need to offload a defender this transfer window to make room for a possible signing, with Stones one player tipped to leave the club.

A relatively inexperienced Mikel Arteta has offered cause for optimism through the early months of his reign, but is considered to have a sizeable rebuilding job on his hands, and Parlour claiming that Stones could be the perfect choice at a relatively reasonable price.

The former Gunners winger told talkSPORT: “That would be a great deal for West Ham if they could get John Stones for £20 million.

“Especially when you look at Nathan Ake who is going to City for £40m…

“Arsenal are desperate for a centre-half, so why don’t they take a chance and try to put in a bid for Stones?

“He’s had a bad time in recent years and he hasn’t really gone to where City thought he might go to, but you don’t become a bad defender overnight, he just needs a bit of coaching.

“And that’s where it could be key with Arsenal, because obviously Arteta has worked with him over the last few years at Man City.

“But if West Ham could get him for that price it would be a great deal, an absolutely brilliant deal.”

Look, Parlour is right and Arsenal should make a move for Stones he would be a bargain for the money that he is reportedly going for this summer.
