Arsenal want Jonny Evans from West Brom for £15m and lots of people are not happy… Man United fans included

A report in The Mirror claims that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is plotting a £15m move for West Bromwich Albion defender Jonny Evans.

Twitter reaction to the story has been widespread and pretty much nobody likes it.

Many Arsenal fans think Evans is beneath them.

This West Brom supporter is not impressed.

And some Man United fans are even a bit annoyed. Why? They too seem to have taken offence with Gooners for being snobbish about their former defender, with many strong opinions suggesting that the 28-year-old is underrated.

Well, Evans has won three Premier League titles, as well as the Championship with Sunderland in 2007.

Evans would not be a bad player to come in and replace the injured Per Mertesacker, would he?

Surely what Wenger needs is a safe bet. He is after an experienced player who knows the Premier League and will do the job asked of him.

It makes sense to me. I get Arsenal fans might be frustrated because they are desperate for more inspiring signings further forward.

But, when it comes to centre-backs, exciting is not what you want!
