Arsenal were knocked back in their bid for West Bromwich Albion ’ s Jonny Evans . According to The Sun, Arsenal launched a £12 million deadline day bid for West Bromwich Albion ’ s Jonny Evans as they looked to make a late swoop for the defender.

West Bromwich Albion ' s Jonny Evans has been linked with moves to Arsenal , Everton and West Ham United. If Manchester United sign Jonny Evans from West Brom then should Everton swoop for Phil Jones?

Gunners chiefs have made moves for Evans in the past, offering big money to West Brom for the Northern Irishman.

However, due to a relegation clause in the former Manchester United man’s contract, he is now available for a cut-price fee of £3 million, making it a particularly viable deal for a club the size of Arsenal.

Greek defender Sokratis is reported to cost around £15 million, however, the deal may be easier to do with the head of recruitment, Sven Misinlat, being a friend of the Greek international.

The North London club have already held talks with Soyuncu of FC Freiburg and he would be another good addition to a backline which could see Shkodran Mustafa leave this summer.
