JONNY EVANS is set to snub Arsenal as he pins his hopes on a summer move to Manchester City.
The West Brom captain was the subject of interest from both clubs before the January window slammed shut.
But with Albion looking almost certain to be relegated to the Championship, Evans has a release clause of just £3million.
That price would tempt both the Premier Club clubs, who were believed to have been quoted around £20m in previous enquiries.
But The Mirror reports that the 30-year-old prefers a move to Pep Guardiola’s side, and is “reluctant” to join Arsenal.
The Baggies are ten points from safety at the foot of the Premier League, and could be relegated this weekend.
Caretaker boss Darren Moore takes his strugglers to Old Trafford for an ominous clash against second-placed Manchester United.
SunSport reported how another Albion player has a relegation release clause.
Striker Salomon Rondon has £16.5million release clause in his contract should the Baggies drop to the Championship.
The potential departure of Rondon will further mount pressure on West Brom, who have endured a season filled with two managerial sackings and notable off-field scandals, including in Barcelona.
Former Zenit forward Rondon, who moved from Russia for £12m in 2015, has netted 27 times in all competitions since joining the Baggies and helped them to 10th in the Premier League last year.
West Brom have previously fended off interest for him, including a £32m bid from Chinese Super League outfit Tianjin Quanjian.
