Arsenal have made an enquiry to sign Jonny Evans from West Bromwich Albion this week, but is the type of player we need?
Our club certainly need to bring in numbers, and our defence has been disastrous so far this term, conceding eight goals in only three Premier League matches already,
We have even allowed ourselves to play both Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac out of position in central defensive roles, but the crazy thing is we allowed Gabriel Paulista to leave during this time, and now look set to allow Shkodran Mustafi to leave also.
Jonny Evans has been linked with a move to Manchester City this summer, and a bid is even claimed to have been received, but our club is now said to have enquired about his signature.
Evans is currently with his international squad training at the Etihad, and is said to have been made available to talk to potential clubs about a move by Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill.
A source close to West Brom has denied any knowledge of interest from our side however, contradicting the claims of Sky Sources.
Virgil Van Dijk is also believed to be on our radar this summer, and the Dutchman is believed to have handed in a transfer request already in the close-season, and had previously been keen on joining Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
Is Jonny Evans good enough for Arsenal? Is his no-nonsense defending exactly what we need? Would he bring some fight back into our side?
