The 29-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Leicester City over the last week and the former Premier League champions are said to have had a £10m bid rejected for the Northern Ireland international.
McAuley has accepted that there is interest in his teammate, but the 37-year-old has claimed that West Brom boss Tony Pulis "will be looking to build a team around" Evans.
"Jonny's been linked but I don't think they will sell. They will be looking to build a team around him," McAuley told reporters.
Evans, who has also previously been linked with Arsenal, joined West Brom from Manchester United in the summer of 2015.
