Despite having been in Old Trafford since 2006, Jonny Evans has never truly been an influential player for Manchester United as the Northern Irish defender only makes a limited number of appearances and has to settle with a place on the sidelines for the majority of almost every single season that he been in Old Trafford.
The manager of West Bromwich Albion, Tony Pulis is targeting Jonny Evans as a summer target that can be signed to reinforce the defensive department of his squad which finished in the 13th spot of the Premier League during the 2014-15 season.
Tony Pulis has already signed a Manchester United player after securing the services of Darren Fletcher on a free transfer back in February but Pulis is hoping he can add lure in another player from Old Trafford and the player who has entered his radar is Jonny Evans.
In the previous season of the Premier League, Evans only managed on making 14 appearances as he struggled trying to find a regular spot in the starting lineup of Louis van Gaal. Injuries were another reason on why he wasn’t as active on the pitch.
Jonny Evans was identified by Pulis as an ideal candidate to be signed in the summer transfer window but a problem that is in the path from this deal of being completed is the fact that Manchester United has a price tag on Evans of around €10 million, which is too much for West Bromwich Albion to pay that amount of money.
When Darren Fletcher was signed by West Bromwich Albion a few months ago on February, the experienced midfielder was immediately turned into the captain of the Premier League club and the player has been reigniting his flame and a similar thing might occur if Jonny Evans is signed by Tony Pullis and his team but it will depend on a number of factors and especially his price tag which is out of the reach of West Bromwich Albion.
