“No, I cannot give you any news on any transfer because we are not close to signing anybody,” –
“We signed a Greek boy [Konstantinos Mavropanos] who looks quite good in training but apart from that, we have not done anything. Will we be out there to do something? Yes we will.” – the Frenchman said in his press conference after Arsenal lost 4-2 at Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup.
Evans, who has played 19 Premier League appearances this season, is under contract at The Hawthorns until the end of next campaign.
