West Bromwich Albion have offered Arsenal summer target Johnny Evans a new contract, according to the Mirror.
Wenger was reportedly keen on the defender in the summer transfer window but a move failed to materialize as Wenger opted to sign his top target in Skhrodan Mustafi.
West Brom are hoping to ward off future interest in the defender by offering him a new contract.
With Arsene Wenger being a big fan of the defender, it is believed he could return for the defender in the future. The Gunners boss tried to sign the Northern Ireland man when he was at Manchester United and has been keeping tabs on his services since then.
Baggies boss Tony Pulis will offer the center back a deal that would make the defender one of the highest paid at the Hawthorns and will the hope that will be enough to keep the player away from Arsenal. The deal would be worth around £75,000 a week.
Evans joined West Brom in 2015 for a fee of £6m and had an impressive season with the Baggies. His outstanding performances were noticed by Wenger and should he perform well again this season, there will surely be interest in his services come next summer.
