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.

Yet while Ball's fancy playmaking opened the most eyes, Josh Hart was just as valuable by starting and finishing multiple breaks. Whoa, grab a tissue and dial back the passion, Lonzo! The Lakers generated 42 points off of fast breaks, Joey Ramirez noted.

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.

The North's delegation will be led by Ri Son Gwon, the head of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea. Detailed schedules after the full session will be crafted between the two sides through consultations.

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.

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".
