  • Wenger hints at Jonny Evans interest; admits midfielder exit possible

Asked about interest in Evans, the Frenchman said in a press conference: "Nothing to say".

The Gunners are in need of a new central defender with Per Mertesacker retiring and Laurent Koscielny, who is forever troubled by an Achilles problem, entering the twilight period of his career, but Wenger is anxious a deal for the £25m-rated Evans may be hijacked by fellow interested party Manchester City, who he admits can blow Arsenal out of the financial water. "I think the best thing is not to talk", he said. "To see off any interest of any other club, yes". When solicitations happen, you respond to it.

On the case of Baggies skipper Jonny Evans, Wenger admits that Arsenal won't be able to win a financial battle against City if both clubs go for the same man.

The Gunners have conceded 28 times in 22 games in the Premier League this season to leave the north London side five points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool FC in the race to secure a Champions League spot.

"I don't know if Man City is in for anybody". 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.

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.

The Bears fired John Fox after a 14-34 record in three years and a.292 winning percentage that ranks as the second-lowest in franchise history.

Wenger is believed to have called the player personally in an effort to seal the deal and give assurances about his role in the squad but Evans will need more.
