Arsenal are reportedly close to signing centre-back Jonny Evans from West Bromwich Albion for around £25m.

Arsenal are reportedly close to signing centre-back Jonny Evans from West Bromwich Albion for around £25m.

The Sun says that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, who is keen on Northern Ireland international Evans, could beat Manchester City to his signature this month.

City, who had a bid for Evans rejected in the summer, have now been replaced as the frontrunners for his signature by Arsenal.

According to the newspaper, Wenger is looking to secure a signing that would bolster his defensive options, and Evans is regarded as one of the best centre-backs outside the Premier League's top six.

The source also says that West Brom are reluctant to allow Evans to leave, but could be persuaded to do so should a suitable offer come in for the player.
