Arsenal are currently 6th in the Premier League and they have already conceded 28 goals in 22 games this season.
If the North Londoners want to finish in the top four then they must reinforce their back line this month and reports suggest that they are close to signing an experienced defender.
According to an exclusive report covered by the Sun, Arsenal are close to agreeing a 25 million pounds ($34million) deal with West Brom to hire the services of former Man United star Jonny Evans.
Evans won three Premier League titles with the Red Devils under the management of Alex Ferguson and then Louis van Gaal opted to sell him to the Baggies.
The Albions currently have 16 points from 22 league games and they are in 19th position. Therefore, losing their star defender would be a massive blow for them.
As per the provided Sun link, even Manchester City have been interested in signing the Northern Irish center half but now, it is Arsenal, who are close to getting their man.
In your opinion, is Evans good enough to strengthen Wenger’s defense?
