Manchester City are continuing their pursuit of Jonny Evans with West Brom ready to cash in on the centre-back.
The Northern Irishman could return to the north-west two years after being sold by Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.
The Daily Mail report that a deal for the defender hangs in the balance and could depend on whether Eliaquim Mangala will agree to move the other way on loan.
The Frenchman’s stint at the Etihad has not been a successful one, hence why Pep Guardiola is so keen to bring in more depth at the back. Vincent Kompany’s injury problems and an erratic first season for John Stones have left City looking to strengthen their defence.
The full-back positions were Guardiola’s first priority and he has brought in Kyle Walker, Danilo, and Benjamin Mendy.
Undoubtedly, their attention will be focused on securing Alexis Sanchez’s exit from Arsenal, but they will still be hoping for some last-minute developments in the Evans deal.
The former United stalwart’s move is being further complicated by the fact that he has travelled to San Marino on international duty.
