That means England defender Stones, 26, looks certain to leave City - and he could be available for just £20milion.

That has sparked interest from West Ham, who are managed by ex-Everton chief Moyes.

Stones joined Everton from Barnsley in a £3m deal in January 2013 but Moyes moved to Manchester United a few months later.

Despite signing for City for £47.5million in 2016, Stones’ career at City looks over and his contract runs out in 2022.

Arsenal are also interested but the London club will have to sell before they can buy.

Good job then that it has been reported up to TEN Gunners stars face the chop.

Relegated Bournemouth have accepted the £40m offer for Ake, 25, from City which includes £1m in adds-odds.

The Dutch international joined Bournemouth in 2017 for a club record £20m and has made 121 appearances for the Cherries.

Chelsea have a clause from the original deal that they are allowed to match another offer but they have yet to contact Bournemouth.

City manager Pep Guardiola has been targeting at least one centre-back to bolster his squad but he could buy a second one.
