Manchester City and Arsenal make enquiries for Jonny Evans ahead of possible bids – report

Manchester City and Arsenal have both followed up their summer interest by making renewed enquiries for West Brom captain Jonny Evans, Sky Sports News reports.

The Northern Ireland international, who turned 30 on Wednesday, could leave the Baggies this month to give boss Alan Pardew funds to rebuild his struggling team with.

No bids have arrived from either Pep Guardiola or Arsene Wenger’s side yet for the former Manchester United centre-back, but he is under serious consideration for both as they look to add strength in depth to their defences.

Evans came close to joining City in the last transfer window and most likely would have had Eliaquim Mangala’s proposed move to Crystal Palace not collapsed when the player decided against a switch to Selhurst Park.

Iñigo Martínez of Real Sociedad is the other central defender being heavily linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium, although Spanish journalist Guillem Balague claimed yesterday that City are not interested in the 26-year-old.
