Report: Arsenal back in for Jonny Evans


According to the Telegraph, Arsenal are weighing up an offer for West Bromwich Albion’s Jonny Evans.

Manchester City and Leicester have been heavily linked with the Northern Ireland international who, according to manager Tony Pulis, was the subject of a bid from the Gunners 12 months ago.

On that occasion, Arsenal turned their attention to signing Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia for £35 million. It now appears that Arsene Wenger is willing to let the German move to Inter Milan on loan which, coupled with Gabriel’s recent exit, means we’re on the hunt for a replacement with Premier League experience.

Virgil Van Dyck has been mooted as another target but that could mean trying to outbid Liverpool who, despite having their wrists slapped for unsolicited contact with the Dutchman earlier in the summer, still appear to be the frontrunner for his signature.

We’re speculating here but potentially Calum Chambers could be dangled as a makeweight for either deal? Or maybe nothing will happen and we’ll promote third choice keeper Matt Macey to first team centre-back? He’s quite big and can kick a football.
