According to a report from the BBC, Arsenal have been handed a massive blow in signing former Manchester United defender Jonny Evans this summer as West Bromwich Albion have reportedly told Arsenal Evans is not for sale and will not be leaving the club this summer.
Wenger realized the club needs to strengthen its defense after last season’s performances and has been working actively to sign a centre back this summer. The French boss revealed he is working hard to announce a done deal after losing Per Mertesacker to injury.
The club have looked to sign Valencia’s Shkodran Mustafi in the last few days but it appears it is keeping it’s options open by keeping tabs on other targets.
The defender joined West Brom from Manchester United last summer. Wenger is a big admirer of the 28 year old and tried to sign him while he was at Manchester United but the Old Trafford club refused to sell to a direct rival.
