Cape Town - Jose Mourinho is not giving up on his pursuit to bring Everton's John Stones to Stamford Bridge this summer.

The Daily Mail report that Chelsea will offer Everton £26 million for the signature of defender John Stones.

Stones is being lined up as John Terry's long-term replacement at the London club despite Everton's stance that Stones will not be sold in the summer.

The 21-year-old signed a five-year contract last season and was a key figure in Roberto Martinez's defence.

Chelsea are pressing on with their public chase for Stones despite Roberto Martinez's angry reaction to the way in which the Blues were conducting their business.

Stones joined the Toffees from Barnsley for £3 million in January 2013.

The young Englishman has four senior caps to his name with the national team and earns £30 000-a-week at Goodison Park.
