Tottenham could make a surprise bid for Manchester United’s Jonny Evans.
Spurs are in the market for a centre back despite boasting Ledley King, Michael Dawson, Sebastian Bassong, Younes Kaboul, William Gallas and Jonathan Woodgate in their squad. However, their continuing injury problems means that their availability is unreliable and manager Harry Redknapp is ready to address the problem by shipping out the older elements and bringing in younger players.
At 23, Evans fits the bill and is on the market after trying Sir Alex Ferguson’s patience one too many times. After a promising start to his Old Trafford career, Evans has gone backwards and, when selected, has often been targeted by the opposition as a perceived weak link such as when Fulham’s Bobby Zamora dominated him aerially in a 2-2 draw at Craven Cottage in September.
But Redknapp is confident that those kinks can be ironed out and is ready to test the water by offering £5m for the Northern Ireland international. (Sportingo)
It has been reported that Harry Redknapp is urgently looking for a new centre back as the Tottenham boss looks to freshen up his back line with some of his current crop of defenders set for an exit and others suffering chronic injury problems, but would they really make a move for Manchester United’s Northern Ireland international Jonny Evans?
Clearly the 23 year old is not a first choice starter but he would surely be keen on remaining at Old Trafford given that Rio Ferdinand is 32 and having some injury problems of late. Sir Alex Ferguson does apparently see the Belfast born defender as one for the future but has also brought in Chris Smalling to add even more options at the back, that said any move for Evans would surely be turned down flat.
