English Premier League side Arsenal have launched a cash bid for West Brom defender, Jonny Evans.

The Emirates club had failed with an offer for the Northern Ireland international worth £10m plus right-back, Mathieu Debuchy during January transfer window.

Evans is available for just £3million due to a relegation release clause in his contract.

According to TransferMarketWeb, “Arsnal’s chiefs are trying their luck again, this time tabling a cash bid for Evan’s signature.”

The report added that an exact fee was not mentioned but it would likely meet the 31-year-old bargain buyout clause.

Arsenal will now face competition from Premier League champions, Manchester City, who also want to sign the defender.

City had an £18m bid for Evans knocked back by West Brom chiefs last summer.

Evans joined the Baggies from United for £6m in 2015 and has one year left on his contract with West Ham.
