England international defender John Stones is reportedly being scouted by La Liga giants FC Barcelona, according to the Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old, who has seven international caps for the Three lions, is also attracting the likes of Premier League sides Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United, plus Spanish rivals Real Madrid ahead of this summer.

Stones, who joined Everton from Barnsley back in January 2013 for a reported £3m, has made 25 appearances in all competitions for the Toffees this season.

Barcelona scouts were spotted watching the England centre-half, who was the subject of four failed bids from the Blues that eventually amounted to £38m, at Stamford Bridge during Everton’s entertaining 3-3 draw against Chelsea.

The report suggests that the La Liga giants could offer around £35m, plus fellow defender Marc Bartra, for Stones’ services at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
