Arsenal are preparing to make a transfer bid for 28 year old West Brom defender Jonny Evans, according to the Mirror. The report states that the Gunners are offering £15 million in exchange for Evans.
Evans would be a very good addition to Arsenal, as they are still searching for a center back partner for Laurent Koscielny. Evans is more than capable of filling this role.
Evans averaged 3.0 interceptions per game and 2.4 tackles per game last season, as he had a solid year for West Brom.
He was also a good player for Manchester United for several seasons, and at only 28 years old, there is no reason to expect him to decline at all this year.
This would seem like a realistic move for Arsenal because Evans will not cost them a fortune, and the Gunners are desperate for some help at center back.
This is definitely a story worth keeping an eye on because Evans would be a great addition to the squad if Arsenal can get him.
