It has been confirmed by the BBC that Arsenal have made an approach to West Brom regarding the availability of their captain Jonny Evans, but the bad news is that Pep Guardiola’s Man City may also be considering making a bid, and Arsene Wenger thinks that the Gunners would have no chance at all of buying him if City decide to go all out to sign the 30 year-old centre-back.
The boss was asked in today’s press conference whether Arsenal had got an agreement for Evans and he replied: “We don’t have an agreement with anybody. I think the best thing is not to talk,” Wenger said in his press conference prior to Arsenal’s trip to Chelsea for the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final.
“We will need to see off any interest of any other club, yes. I don’t know if Manchester City are in for anybody. I don’t know what their policy is.
“If the decision comes to finances against Manchester City, we know we will be second best.”
This is a fact as the Citizens have an unlimited pit when it comes to buying players and paying higher wages than anyone else in the Premier League, and even if Wenger won ten jackpots in a visit to www.freespinsonlinecasino.com he could still never outbid the oil-rich shiekhs. But there is another small fact that may be the reason that Evans would prefer to go to the Etihad. Perhaps he would like the idea of having a Premier League winners medal handed to him on a plate?
This could also be the reason why Alexis Sanchez is also desperate for a move right now…
