Arsenal lunch cash bid for Manchester City target, Evans

Arsenal have launched a cash bid for West Brom defender, Jonny Evans.
*
The Gunners have a long-term interest in the Northern Ireland international.
*
The Emirates club had failed with an offer for Evans worth £10m plus right-back, Mathieu Debuchy during January transfer window.
*
Evans is available for just £3million due to a relegation release clause in his contract.
*
TransferMarketWeb reports that, “Arsnal’s chiefs are trying their luck again, this time tabling a cash bid for Evan’s signature.”
*
The report added that an exact fee was not mentioned but it would likely meet the 31-year-old bargain buyout clause.
*
Arsenal will now face competition from Premier League rivals, Manchester City, who also want to sign the defender.
*
City had an £18m bid for Evans knocked back by West Brom chiefs last summer.
*
Evans joined the Baggies from United for £6m in 2015 and has one year left on his contract with West Ham.
*
Meanwhile, West Brom caretaker manager, Darren Moore had previously refused to address Evans’ situation.
*
Speaking last month about Evans’ future at West Brom, Moore told reporters: “I’m delighted that he’s here at the football club, really pleased to have the opportunity to work with him and may that continue.
*
“What happens with Jonny in the future, we can’t comment on that now. That isn’t decided yet. He’s still under contract at the football club. Everybody will speculate, I can’t control that.”
