Arsenal have been handed a boost in their pursuit of West Bromwich Albion defender Jonny Evans, with the Baggies close to the loan signing of Ali Gabr from Zamalek.
The Egyptian international defender is a potential replacement for Evans at the Hawthorns, with the Northern Irishman a reported January target for both Arsenal and Manchester City.
And Arsenal are now in ‘pole position’ to sign Evans this month, reports football.london.
West Brom captain Evans is widely expected to leave before the transfer window shuts, with Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola renewing their battle to sign him.
According to The Mirror , there is a clause in Evans’ contract that means he can leave for £3 million if Alan Pardew’s side are relegated from the Premier League.
