BBC confirm Arsenal approach for Jonny Evans

Jonny Evans GETTY Jonny Evans is wanted by Arsneal and Man City
Chelsea Rogers | 10 January, 2018, 02:16

Jonny Evans was a rumoured target for Manchester City in the summer and has since been linked with a number of other top-flight clubs, including Arsenal.

Evans' family are still based in the north west and it is thought his preference would be to remain in the area.

Arsene Wenger has confessed that Arsenal will miss out to Manchester City on defender Jonny Evans if both sides make an approach for the West Bromwich Albion defender.

The Gunners are in need of a new central defender with Per Mertesacker retiring and Laurent Koscielny, who is forever troubled by an Achilles problem, entering the twilight period of his career, but Wenger is anxious a deal for the £25m-rated Evans may be hijacked by fellow interested party Manchester City, who he admits can blow Arsenal out of the financial water. As long as we don't have any agreement with anybody, I believe the best is not to talk.

Other Premier League clubs are also interested in Evans but can not match the lure of European football for a player who was on the bench for Manchester United's Champions League final defeat by Barcelona in 2009.

GETTY Arsene Wenger is pessimistic about the chances of signing Jonny Evans

"I don't know what is their policy".

And Wenger pointed to the fact that, in a straight bidding war, the Gunners would be "second best" to Pep Guardiola's side.

"But we know that if the decision comes down to the financial point of view, we'll be second best to Manchester City".

The Arsenal boss also said there was no news to report when it comes to contract negotiations with Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere, who like Sanchez have deals that expire this summer.
