Chelsea transfer target John Stones was labelled a "f****** rat" by an Everton supporter in the Toffees' 5-3 victory over Barnsley in the Capital One Cup last night. 

As reported by the Mirror, the Everton centre-half, who reportedly handed in a transfer request at Goodison Park earlier this week, was the subject of abuse as he walked towards the tunnel. 

Despite being abused by one supporter, Stones was given a fairly good reception by the travelling fans, as they saw their side come from behind to secure an extra-time victory.

It's far from certain, however, as to whether the England international will feature for Everton again, with Chelsea seemingly intent on bringing him to Stamford Bridge sooner rather than later. 

In fact, the same report from the Mirror claims that Chelsea have already seen three offers in the region of £20 million, £26m and £30m rejected for the player's services. It's expected that the west London outfit will make one final move of £40m for the talented youngster before the close of the window. 

Tricky to reject 

No doubt, opinion will be split over the possibility of Stones moving to Chelsea in the coming days. One thing's for sure, at Everton, Stones is at a fine club, and will only continue to improve under the guidance of Roberto Martinez, while playing week in, week out. 

However, it's not so easy to reject a club the size of Chelsea when they come calling. Ultimately, playing alongside the likes of John Terry, Stones will learn great deal, and no doubt become a key player for the club for the long-term. 

At the end of the day, in west London, Stones would stand a great chance of achieving a great deal in the game and securing silverware. 

Will Stones sign for Chelsea before the close of the transfer window? Have your say below!
