ARSENAL have tabled a bid for West Brom defender Jonny Evans.

Evans is wanted at the Emirates Stadium this month to help bolster Arsene Wenger’s backline.

Wenger is on the lookout for new recruits at the back with Per Mertesacker retiring at the end of the season.

And Starsport understand an offer of £10m plus right-back Mathieu Debuchy has now been made for the Northern Ireland international.

Manchester City are also keen on Evans but have turned their attention to Aymeric Laporte instead.

The Gunners know West Brom need to sell Evans if boss Alan Pardew is to have any cash to spend.
