All the Arsenal transfer talk has been about the possible swap deal with Man United for Alexis Sanchez and Henrik Mkhitaryan, but the three other big rumours this month concerning the Gunners have been mentioning Aubameyang, Malcom and Jonny Evans, and Arsene Wenger was asked about all three in today’s press conference.
Wenger admitted that he liked Aubameyang, although Dortmund have since said that there has been no contact, and any Malcom move was denied by the Boss, and when asked about Jonny Evan Arsene replied: “There as well there is nothing to add at the moment.”
This was very surprising to me as it is a fact that it is our leaky defence that has caused us to lose so many points this season We are desperately in need of an upgrade, and Evans looks like the best EPL defender available right now.
But today, Evans boss at West Brom has said that he has received no offers for the top centre-back. “From my point of view there is no bid, so there’s nothing to discuss,” Pardew said.
“On the other hand, we have scenarios that are going to time out if we don’t get a bid for Jonny that’s acceptable for him and us.
“Jonny hasn’t come and seen me this week, so I’m in the dark a little bit. We haven’t had a phone call from another football club and that’s where it stands.
“In terms of our plans to use that money if it was to come in the door, that time is ticking away and that concerns me a little bit more.”
It causes me a lot of concern too! Surely we don’t need to sell anyone else to get the £23 million asking price do we?
