West Brom reject Manchester City bid for Evans

Jonny Evans West Brom

Former Manchester United defender Jonny Evans could be heading back to the city, claims BBC Sport, but it's Manchester City who are wooing him.

Evans joined United as a schoolboy before going on to win three Premier League titles and two League Cups while making 198 appearances. Furthermore, just last season, Arsenal were reportedly interested in securing the services of the Irishman, which was duly rejected by his club, since he had over two years still left on his contract.

He played at the 2016 European Championships while his one and only worldwide goal came nearly six-and-a-half years ago in a World Cup qualifier against Poland.

Manchester City have initial £18 million bid rejected for West Brom defender Jonny Evans

According to several reports, West Brom have turned down an £18million bid from the Blues, after a £10million offer from Leicester was also rejected.

As West Brom embark on their eighth-consecutive Premier League campaign, Evans was handed the captain's armband in recent months in an attempt to ward off potential suitors, as Tony Pulis aims to further consolidate his side's place in the top flight. Guardiola on the other hand, is a manager who knows which player profiles he wants to add to his squad and there is bound to be some reason behind his move for Evans, which doesn't seem to be coming to fruition. City have been scouring for a domineering presence at centre-back with moves lined up for Virgil Van Dijk and Leonardo Bonucci. I am struggling to find a negative. Guardiola is thought to see Evans as a more reliable option at the back, given his wealth of Premier League and European experience. People say he's not worth it, but there are so few of them around - so of course he is worth it.
