Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has responded to questions about West Brom’s Jonny Evans.

Arsenal have been weighing up a move for the Northern Ireland international since the summer but faced fierce competition from Manchester City.

However, the Blues have now withdrawn their interest leaving Wenger the favourite to land the defender.

West Brom’s £23.5million asking price is considered too steep by the north London outfit.

But Wenger has now hinted that he may make a move for Evans this month, by claiming he is “open” to bringing in reinforcements.

“We are open to strengthening the team,” Wenger said.

“But at the moment we are not close to signing anyone.”
