Pep Guardiola reportedly interested in bringing Jonny Evans to Manchester City

Pep Guardiola reportedly interested in bringing Jonny Evans to Manchester City

Few would have predicted Manchester City making a move for West Bromwich Albion captain Jonny Evans this summer.

A move for Middlesbrough's Ben Gibson had also been considered, though Evans is regarded as a better option than the 24-year-old at this moment in time.

Do you think Evans would fit in at City? City have been scouring for a domineering presence at centre-back with moves lined up for Virgil Van Dijk and Leonardo Bonucci.

When the rumors about Manchester City being interested in West Bromwich Albion captain Jonny Evans first came out, we all thought it was hilarious and amusing but there was no way this was true.

"But this time a year ago, Arsenal were interested in him as well".

The Frenchman has been training with the Blues in recent weeks and is now with the first-team squad in Girona, but is only considered a temporary option while other options are pursued.

The Spaniard is thought to be keen on a deal for the centre-back, but faces fierce competition for places with opposite number Vincent Kompany, Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones to contend with at the Etihad this term.

Nonetheless, Evans still made 198 appearances for the Old Trafford club, winning three Premier League titles, two League Cups and a FIFA Club World Cup.

Jonny Evans would be a good signing for City.

Evans drew interest from City's Premier League rivals Arsenal last summer, although their approach was also rejected. Eliaquim Mangala spent last season on loan at Valencia and didn't doing anything at the Mestalla or in preseason to convince Guardiola he should be part of his plans, and the Frenchman is expected to leave before the transfer window shuts.
