However, Pulis has claimed that the Northern Irishman, who has been offered the skipper's armband after it was vacated by Darren Fletcher, is not going anywhere this summer.
"Jonny Evans is staying at West Bromwich Albion football club. There is no doubt about that," the Express & Star quotes Pulis as saying.
"Jonny will be our captain next season. I've spoken to Jonny earlier in pre-season, he had a fantastic year last year and we're hoping he steps up. He's never been given this responsibility before."
West Brom will take on Leicester in the Premier League Asia Trophy at the Hong Kong Stadium on Wednesday.
