Alan Pardew has warned Arsenal over any potential move for Jonny Evans, with Arsene Wenger’s Premier League side reportedly keen on signing the veteran centre-half to strengthen their defence.

Arsenal were forced to part with their best player this week as Alexis Sanchez finally left the club. The Chilean had been tipped to move to Manchester City to reunite with Pep Guardiola, but this move did not happen, with the player instead moving to Manchester United.

West Brom boss Alan Pardew revealed yesterday that Baggies centre-back Jonny Evans has attracted the interest of big clubs, which has fanned the flames of a move to Arsenal this month. The Baggies boss also stated the defender has picked up a hamstring injury that could scupper a move in the next few days.

Pardew told BT Sport: “Jonny is being approached by big clubs,”

“As yet, we haven’t got an offer that’s right for a player of his quality, which he showed tonight.

Why West Brom’s interest in Mathieu Debuchy could be perfect for Arsenal 0

As transfers go, this one could be pretty much perfect. Arsenal need a new centre-half, and West Brom are in desperate need of reinforcements as their campaign is threatening to end in relegation from the Premier League this season.

It has been reported in recent days that Arsenal are looking to sign West Brom’s Jonny Evans with the defensive failings of the side constantly threatening to derail the team. Perhaps the ex-Manchester united centre-back can provide some solidity to a team that has looked so weak at the back at multiple points throughout the campaign.

Mathieu Debuchy of Arsenal is reportedly a transfer target of West Brom, with the Premier League side in desperate need of reinforcements following a torrid start to the season which has seen them languishing in 19th-place in the league after 22 games.

Arsenal’s last league game ended in a draw as a pulsating 2-2 scoreline saw both the Gunners and Chelsea share the spoils. The match itself was littered with moments of magic, goals, big tackles and controversy as the two played out one of the games of the season.

Arsenal once again Arsenaled at West Brom on Sunday, as the Gunners drew 1-1 against the team second from bottom in the Premier League table.

The Gunners just did not turn up and produced a lacklustre display against a resilient Baggies team. There was not a huge gulf in quality in the clash, which is quite worrying for Arsenal fans.

However, fans of the north London club have had to cope with disappointing results against so-called inferior opposition for a good while now. While most Arsenal players underperformed, central midfielder Jack Wilshere produced another bright performance.

Arsenal were once again hamstrung by their familiar failings as they drew 1-1 with West Brom. The Gunners had the chance to move to within a single point of Liverpool in fourth, but instead, they are now three points behind them having played the same amount of games.

Since their game against Manchester United in which they lost 3-1, they have been hurt by their apparent inability to make their dominance count. Against West Brom, they enjoyed 65% possession, which led to 14 shots, the same amount as West Brom, a side that have scored just 15 goals this season.

On Sunday afternoon, West Brom host Arsenal at the Hawthorns in the Premier League, as both sides look to chalk up vital points.

West Brom are currently in the thick of the relegation dogfight. The Baggies are second from bottom in the top-flight table but are just three points away from the safety of 17th place.

The home side have failed to win any of their last 18 Premier League games after a goalless home draw with Everton last time out. The Baggies have failed to win in their last nine home games in the top-flight.

14/1 for Lacazette to win the Golden Boot after double against the Baggies 0

Alexandre Lacazette arrived at Arsenal in the summer as a goal-machine from his time with Lyon in Ligue One. On Monday night, the French striker scored a brace in the Gunners 2-0 victory over West Brom at the Emirates Stadium.

The double means that Lacazette has now scored four Premier League goals in his six top-flight appearances this season, one of which was a cameo appearance off the bench at Liverpool.

Proving doubters wrong

The French international has certainly continued where he left in his native league this season. There were question marks over whether he could be prolific in a higher standard of league. However, those doubts seem to be unfounded at the moment.

On Monday night, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory over West Brom at the Emirates Stadium, courtesy of a brace from Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal came close to taking the lead in the first five minutes. Alexis Sanchez saw a free-kick from the left edge of the area go just past Ben Foster’s right-hand post. The visitors went even closer to opening the score just a few minutes later.
