Manchester United star subject of bid after Tottenham deal falls apart

Manchester United star Jonny Evans is a target for West Brom after Tottenham ace Federico Fazio failed to agree contract terms, reports the Express And Star.

The Spurs man was set to complete a move to the Hawthorns for approximately £5 million, but the player could not agree personal terms with the Midlands club. With the deal on hold, the Baggies have turned their eye to the Northern Irishman.

Earlier in the summer it was thought that the 27-year-old was going to join Everton [The Guardian], but a move never materialised. Tottenham themselves, and Stoke City, have also been linked to the defender [Sky Sports], so it could take a big effort from Tony Pulis to land the former Sunderland loanee.

Evans looks out of favour at Old Trafford, with Daley Blind even playing ahead of him at centre-back. The Netherlands international is more suited to a position in midfield or at left-back, and Evans is also behind Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, and Marcos Rojo in the pecking order when they are fit.

West Brom have been busy in the transfer window, and if either Evans or Fazio were to arrive they would be the Baggies’ sixth signing of the summer. Pulis has already brought Rickie Lambert, James Chester, Salomon Rondon, James McClean and Serge Gnabry, with the last of these coming on a loan move from Arsenal.
