Surrounded by the backlash in the aftermath of Arsenal’s drubbing at the hands of Nottingham Forest, the rumor mill continues to spin as the Gunners have been linked with West Brom skipper Jonny Evans.
The West Brom center-back has previously been heavily-linked with the English giants throughout the previous summer transfer window. According to the report by Sky Sports, Arsenal sent in a fresh enquiry over the availability of the Northern Ireland international. With 18 months left in his contract, West Brom have reportedly come to terms with his eventual departure and are open to bids for Evans.
Arsenal’s issues at the back have been well-documented, so a center-back signing should be a main priority for Wenger and co this January. But will he make a big winter splash? Can the unthinkable be done? We just got to sit back, and just wait and see.
Evans is reportedly valued at £25 million.
