Arsene Wenger: Arsenal can't compete with Man City on Jonny Evans

Arsene Wenger: Arsenal can't compete with Man City on Jonny Evans

West Brom are thought to want around £25 million for Evans, who has 18 months left on his existing contract at the Hawthorns and indicated to the Midlands club, now second bottom of the Premier League, that he would be unwilling to sign a new deal.

Northern Ireland centre-back Jonny Evans is a wanted man and any potential move away from West Brom may have moved a step closer.

West Brom would benefit from bringing in an experienced defender and Debuchy certainly fits the bill in that regard.

West Brom rejected interest from Arsenal, Manchester City and Leicester in the summer but this month could be their last chance to generate the kind of fee that would allow new boss Alan Pardew to bolster his squad.

Byton Electric SUV Concept at CES looks a convincing Chinese challenge
Its normal-looking electric SUV is crammed with so much tech inside that it makes the Tesla Model X look like an outdated vehicle. Byton will offer a rear-wheel drive version of the vehicle with a 71 kilowatt-hour battery pack capable of 249 miles of range.

Nevertheless, he is unlikely to reject the opportunity to join a club of Arsenal's standing on those grounds alone.

Speaking at his news conference ahead of Wedenesday's League Cup semi-final clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Wenger conceded a battle for Evans with Man City would only end up with one victor.

It's unknown which CPUs were affected, but one report identified specific vulnerabilities in the Athlon and Sempron chips. But Google publicly confirmed the flaws on Wednesday after outside researchers began independently unearthing the flaws.

So while Evans ponders the trappings of a high profile move to this year's Champions or a move to the North London club that is under reconstruction, we await Wenger's plan B.

"It would only be philosophical to talk about [Evans] as long as we do not have any agreement with anybody", he said.

Huawei's AT&T deal reportedly just imploded
It's said that Huawei was planning to announce the news Tuesday, aka tomorrow, but now the company's deal with AT&T is no more. An AT&T spokesman declined to comment, noting that the company hasn't commented on this rumor for the past few months.

That's after the BBC reported that both Arsenal and Manchester City have made contact with the Hawthorns club over a transfer for the 30-year-old centre-back. "But if the decision comes to finances with Manchester City we know we will be second best".
