Wenger Speaks About A Potential Man City Bidding War For Jonny Evans

"I think the best thing is not to talk", Wenger said.

City would be getting an experienced worldwide player who is proven in the Premier League and the underrated defender has improved since joining West Brom from Manchester United for £6m in 2015.

Everton are among a number of other suitors who have a watching interest in Evans but there is recognition that they could not compete with City or Arsenal for the 30-year-old, who wants European football and the chance to compete at the top again. Financially, if the decision comes to finances with Manchester City, we know we will be second best.

Arsene Wenger refused to confirm Arsenal have struck a deal with West Brom to sign Jonny Evans and suggested that Manchester City are at an advantage to sign the former Manchester United man. "That is well known".

Asked about interest in Evans, the Frenchman said in a press conference: "Nothing to say".

While he also suggests Evans would prefer a move to City, he adds that a move to Arsenal cannot be fully ruled out.

Wenger also confirmed that midfielder Francis Coquelin could be sold this month. He knows he can have those conversations (about a new deal) with us.

The Gunners have conceded 28 times in 22 games in the Premier League this season to leave the north London side five points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool FC in the race to secure a Champions League spot.

Arsenal are in dire need of defensive reinforcements following their humiliation at the hands of Nottingham Forest.

Arsenal have a trio of defenders injured at the moment, with Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac all set to miss Wednesday's Carabao Cup semifinal at Chelsea.
