West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis revealed Arsenal an approach for Manchester City-target Jonny Evans 12 months ago. “He had a chance to go to Arsenal last year. It didn’t affect him in any way,” said Pulis, reports the Express.
“You could say Manchester City are different because they will be hoping to win the title, the Champions league, and the FA Cup. It is difficult. We don’t want to sell him, or need to sell him, we are not desperate to get the money in, so it would have to be a very, very good offer. Then we would sit down and talk to Jonny about the situation,” he added. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal hosts midtable West Brom at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday as the home side looks to move one step closer to securing their place in the top four this season.
The Gunners have been under-par in the past few weeks as their challenge for the Premier League title has rather floundered and could now have a fight on their hands to finish fourth, so a win in this clash is imperative.

Arsene Wenger has decided to recall Serge Gnabry from West Brom after the highly rated German failed to make a big impact on the Premier League with Tony Pulis’ team.
Gnabry signed for the Baggies last August, but was never given a chance during five months with the club and was restricted to just 12 minutes of league football.
Talented 20-year-old winger broke into the Arsenal fold in the 2013/14 season and was regarded as one of the most promising young footballer in European football. .......Read more here.....

According to the Birmingham Mail, former-Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby is in talks with Premier League outfit West Brom over a move to the Midlands.
The injury-prone French international was released by Arsenal earlier this month after his contract in north London expired. There was talk of a pay-as-you-play type deal for the midfielder, but in the end he left the Gunners completely.
It seems however that the Baggies are prepared to give the 29-year-old a similar deal in order for him to carry on his career in the Premier League. The move would represent a very minimal risk for the Baggies. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal wraps up their Premier League game campaign with a home game against West Brom at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
The Gunners goalless draw with Sunderland on Wednesday night virtually secured third-place and an automatic place in next season’s Champions League, as they sit three points above rivals Manchester United who have an inferior goal difference of seven.
The Gunners have stuttered in recent games, having drawn two and lost one of their previous three fixtures in the Premier League. That slight slump means they can longer catch second place Manchester City this season. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal host Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on the opening day of the Premier League campaign.
The Gunners will head into the season in confident mood after a convincing 3-0 victory over champions Manchester City in last weekend’s Community Shield at Wembley. The performance was an impressive one, with goals from Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud sinking the Citizens.
That win came after a busy summer in the transfer market for veteran Gunners boss Arsene Wenger. The Gunners biggest signing of the summer was Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez, while the additions of young defender Calum Chambers, Colombian keeper David Ospina and French full-back Mathieu Debuchy all look like very useful signings. .......Read more here.....

Following a goalless first half, it took the hosts just minutes into the second to find the breakthrough. Santi Cazorla dinked a pass to Oxlade-Chamberlain, who controlled the ball and lobbed his shot over the onrushing Palace ‘keeper Julian Speroni.
The England international then doubled the hosts’ advantage in the 73rd minute. After playing a one-two with striker Olivier Giroud, Oxlade-Chamberlain dribbled down the left and cut inside, before firing his shot past Speroni to make it 2-0. .......Read more here.....
