West Brom boss Alan Pardew prepared for possible Jonny Evans departure

Evans has started 12 of West Brom's 15 Premier League games this season, scoring one goal in the 2-2 draw at home to Watford in September.

It seems Evans' continued impressive performances at the back have earned him a great deal of admirers, as West Ham and Everton will now try to lure the Northern Irishman away from the Hawthorns as they attempt to solve their defensive woes.

Arsenal and Leicester were also interested in the veteran central defender, and with City now likely to come back with a bid it appears West Brom are resigned to losing the 29 year-old. Do I want to lose him?

Wenger impressed by 'stylish' Arsenal: They can beat anyone
Now, with the addition of Lacazette, it seems as if Walcott's time in North London is coming towards an end. Walcott joined Arsenal as a 16-year-old for £12m from Southampton as one of England's brightest talents.

Pardew said: "I'm never confident when you've got great players because other clubs want great players so your best players are always vulnerable". Of course not. Do I fear losing him? "It makes good headlines for the media". I understand that we deal with it and Jonny has dealt with it in his own way.

Despite the Baggies struggling to play well, Evans has been one of the players that has been starring for them regularly, so much so that Manchester City tried to recruit him during the summer transfer window but had their approach turned down. Of course I do'. "For me, he was terrific".

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, meanwhile, will see Per Mertesacker retire at the end of the current campaign. The injured Shkodran Mustafi's future has also been subject to question marks and Laurent Koscielny, now 32, will have to manage a chronic achilles condition for the remainder of his career.
