The North London side are aware that West Brom need to sell Evans if boss Alan Pardew is to have any cash to spend.

The report also claims Arsenal also know of a relegation clause in the player’s contract which means he would be free to leave for just £3m if the Baggies go down.

SunSport exclusively reported on Friday that West Brom are holding out for at least £27m as the winter window draws to a close.

Speaking this week, Baggies boss Alan Pardew confirmed the club were willing to sell Evans.

“Jonny is still at the football club and we haven’t had a bid put to us that is anywhere near acceptable,” Pardew said.

“We’ve had a couple of enquiries of what we would be looking for, and the answer has been: ‘we’re not going to tell you.’ You make a bid and you’ll get some gauge.

“What I will confirm is what you already know, Jonny Evans is a target for other clubs, we might sell if the price is right, that’s that deal, everything else is pure speculation.”
