Arsenal make swap offer for West Brom defender Jonny Evans

Arsenal make swap offer for West Brom defender Jonny Evans”

Although Arsene Wenger point blank refused to talk about any Arsenal transfer rumours, including Jonny Evans, after we beat Chelsea on Wednesday, but the fact is that everyone knows the Gunners are desperately in need of a new experienced centre-back and the West Brom captain is probably the best available at the moment with EPL experience.

Arsenal and Manchester City were reported to have revived their respective pursuits of Evans this month after failing to prise him away from The Hawthorns last summer.

It remains to be seen how West Brom respond to our offer but I expect they'll swiftly reject it and hold out for more as Evans is a vital player for them and it's not worth their time selling for just £10m.

Pep Guardiola tried to sign Evans last summer but has now turned his attentions to Aymeric Laporte, sanctioning a club-record £57m move for the Athletic Bilbao defender.

"We've had a couple of enquiries of what we would be looking for, and the answer has been "we're not going to tell you".

Some reports had suggested Arsenal would be willing to add Mathieu Debuchy to their bid to try and persuade the Baggies to sell, but Pardew was quick to dismiss that.

"He's a player we're interested in, whether it depends upon Jonny's transfer is for our own personal opinion", said Pardew. Actually, that might be unfair.

Evans is expected to feature in West Brom's FA Cup fourth-round clash with Liverpool on Saturday, providing he does not contract the sickness bug that has ruled out a number of Pardew's squad. "We don't really want to sell Jonny but we'll see".

"[James] McClean, [Jay] Rodriguez, [Ben] Foster, [Ahmed] Hegazi and G-Mac [Gareth McAuley] - so there's a few [doubtful]. Hopefully he'll be okay".
