ARSENAL have been tipped to snap up West Brom ace Jonny Evans before the transfer window slams shut tomorrow.
The Gunners are the 11/8 favourites with bookies Coral to sign the northern Ireland international.
Meanwhile, Olivier Giroud is odds-on at 2/7 to leave the Emirates and sign for Chelsea.
Michy Batshuayi is 8/13 to join Borussia Dortmund from the west Londoners.
“The betting suggests there is a strong possibility that Arsenal will tie up a deal for Jonny Evans before the January transfer window closes tomorrow where it looks like they are the only club in the hunt for the Northern Ireland international now,” said Coral’s John Hill.
“Olivier Giroud is long odds-on to switch London clubs to Chelsea, while Michy Batshuayi is the favourite to be Aubameyang’s replacement at Dortmund,” added Hill.
Starsport understands a deal for Evans could be a long shot though.
West Brom are demanding around £25m for the ex-Manchester United defender – and Arsenal think that price is prohibitive.
