Arsene Wenger: Arsenal can't compete with Man City on Jonny Evans

"It would only be philosophical to talk about [Evans] as long as we do not have any agreement with anybody", he said. Jonny is a top player, other clubs were interested in him in the summer.

City would be getting an experienced global player who is proven in the Premier League and the underrated defender has improved since joining West Brom from Manchester United for £6m in 2015.

Northern Ireland centre-back Jonny Evans is a wanted man and any potential move away from West Brom may have moved a step closer. I don't know what their policy is.

"If the decision comes to finances against Manchester City, we know we will be second best".

Wenger also confirmed that midfielder Francis Coquelin could be sold this month.

Larry Wisdom, who about 10 years ago was a major player in Chicago suburban real estate, played a pivotal role in Nagy's life. His contract is up on Tuesday, and the Bears have reportedly been interested in retaining him in his position.

The north Londoners have conceded 28 goals in 22 Premier League games this season. However, he added that West Ham was not a possible destination for Coquelin, despite reports claiming that David Moyes was interested in making a bid.

Negotiations with the player and WBA were going well and were said to be at an advanced stage, but City tabled a counter bid which the player and his agent are now considering.

Wenger acknowledged that his defence has struggled this season, with the Gunners sitting in sixth place in the Premier League and having suffered a third-round FA Cup exit against Nottingham Forest.

Arsenal face Chelsea in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final tomorrow at Stamford Bridge.

A ball playing centre-half, Evans fits with the way both Wenger and City manager Pep Guardiola want to play.
