Arsenal have joined the battle to sign West Brom centre-back Jonny Evans.

Manchester City are thought to be leading the race for the Northern Irishman’s signature, with a £30million bid expected in the coming days.

But The Telegraph believe Arsenal now have their sights set on the former Manchester United defender.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger approached West Brom for Evans last season, and is once again interested after a calamitous start to the season that’s seen them ship eight goals in three matches.

Leicester had a bid of £21 million for Evans rejected this week but are likely to lose out to City or Arsenal.
